Wednesday, June 10, 2020, Atoka Police Captain Brian Snead arrived at a residence owned by Second Chance due to property damage.
Mary Thomas, affiliated with Second Chance, informed Captain Snead the damage was discovered shortly after the occupant was evicted.
The estimated cost of the damage was $500. Text messages between Thomas and the resident informed them of the damage. The occupant agreed to pay for the damage. Thomas told them that if they were not the ones who caused the damage to provide the name of who did.
Second Chance decided to press charges due to the occupant not paying rent during their stay.
The next week on Wednesday, June 17, 2020, Captain Snead was called to a domestic in progress at a residence on East B Street.
The victim told Captain Snead that the day before, Kyler Henson, 23, of Atoka, had become enraged after denying the use of their cell phone. Henson damaged a TV valued at $200 and a mini fridge valued at $20.
Afraid of what may happen next, the victim left the residence to spend the night elsewhere.
Returning on June 17th to the home, Henson kicked open the unlocked exterior door and began arguing with the victim. He was told to leave the residence.
Henson pushed them onto the couch, and using a closed fist hit the victim on the left side of the neck when they tried to stand back up. The victim attempted to dial 911, but Henson pinned them down on the couch with his arm across their neck trying to take the phone away.
Henson left before police arrived.
The victim of the assault was questioned about the damages at Second Chance. They informed Captain Snead that while in bed Henson arrived at the residence to begin striking the walls and kicking furniture.
Henson is currently a suspect in both cases, no arrests have been made as of press time.
