On Thursday, August 17, 2017 at 11:30am, Texarkana Arkansas Police received a 911 call from a third party individual advising a female was involved in a domestic dispute with her boyfriend at a residence in the 1800 block of Pearl Street. The individual reported the female involved had suffered serious injuries and the alleged suspect had a firearm.
Officers arrived at the residence and were unable to make contact with the alleged female nor the suspect. Based on the actions of individuals inside the residence at the time of officer’s arrival, TAPD SWAT was requested and responded to the scene. After several attempts, contact was made by phone with suspect, Brandon Gregory, 31yoa, who exited the residence voluntarily following negotiations with the TAPD Hostage Negotiation Team. A second subject, Matt Williams, 30 was inside the residence and was arrested on unrelated warrants. While questioning Gregory and Williams as to the whereabouts of the alleged female, TAPD received notification from Wadley Hospital reporting a female had arrived in the emergency room with injuries indicating assault. Detectives responded to Wadley and confirmed the female was the victim of the call on Pearl Street.
Gregory was arrested for Aggravated Assault and Domestic Battery 2nd.
Brandon Gregory was recently released on parole from ADC stemming from a 2011 conviction of Kidnapping and Battery where he was sentenced to 13 years.
