Stillwater Police

Domestic disturbance

A Stillwater man was arrested the morning of Sept. 26 after police responded to a domestic disturbance call involving a gun at 1400 N. Perkins Road.

Police arrived at approximately 8:30 a.m. and set up a perimeter around the apartment. After police knocked on the door, two women exited the apartment and informed officers the suspect was upstairs with a gun and two other women, according to a police report.

A few moments later, Devin Tereze Thompson, 20, left the apartment with his hands in the air. He was handcuffed and taken into custody. Two other women then exited the apartment as well, according to the report.

Police searched the apartment and found two guns, one of which belonged to one of the residents of the apartment, according to the report.

One of the women was Thompson’s girlfriend, according to the report.

At 1:30 a.m. Thompson went to the store with two of the women and was flirting with one of them, according to records.

When the trio arrived at the apartment, the girl informed Thompson’s girlfriend of the flirting, causing Thompson and his girlfriend to become upset, according to the report.

Thompson reportedly pulled out a gun and blocked the three women from leaving the room. He threatened to beat them and kill them, according to the report. His girlfriend denied seeing a gun. A fourth woman stated she was asleep downstairs during the ordeal, according to the report.

Thompson was arrested for kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon and taken to the Payne County Jail, according to the report.

Thompson made his first appearance before a judge on Sept. 27, and his bail was set at $50,000. He will make his next appearance at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Hug pups, not pot

Stillwater police responded to a report of possible animal abuse and drug activity Sept. 23 at the Speedy Splash Car Wash at 324 E. Sixth Ave.

When an officer arrived, a witness pointed out a silver SUV.

The officer approached the SUV and knocked on the window. When the window was rolled down, smoke poured out of it, according to the report.

Three OSU students were occupying the car: Margaret Amorie Jones, 18; Zauriae Dujoycia Norwood, 19; and Aryael Lacey Thompson, 19. The three were reportedly high on marijuana, and Thompson was in possession of a small puppy.

A search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of two marijuana pipes and a glass jar containing marijuana, according to the report.

Jones, Norwood and Thompson were cited for possession of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia. The complaint of animal abuse was unfounded, according to police reports. 

'Oh, that’s cocaine'

At 3:45 a.m. on Sept. 22, Stillwater police were dispatched to the Short Stop convenience store at 1010 W. Sixth St. in response to a 911 hang-up call.

When officers arrived at the scene, there were several cars in the parking lot and a group of people in the store. When those people noticed the arrival of police, they began to move toward their cars, according to the police report.

When officers entered the store, Henry Calum Emerald Moon, 21, who was visibly drunk, began making racist comments and complaining the store clerk was refusing to sell him alcohol, according to records. After officers asked Moon to step outside the store, they had to escort him out, according to the report.

Police asked the store clerk what had happened. The clerk said he was refusing to sell Moon alcohol and that Moon was threatening to “drag him over the counter and beat his ass,” according to the report.

When officers requested identification from Moon, many of his companions tried to interfere and were warned to move away.

Moon admitted to threatening the clerk for not selling him alcohol and admitted that he had been drinking, according to the report.

Moon was placed under arrest for public intoxication. While he was patted down, Moon admitted to possessing marijuana. Along with a bag of weed, officers also found a bag full of a white, powdery substance.

When asked what it was, Moon replied, “Oh, that’s cocaine,” according to the report.

Moon was arrested and taken to the SPD jail. He made his first court appearance Sept. 27 and pleaded not guilty. He will make his next court appearance Oct. 9.

Assault with deadly weapon

Stillwater police were dispatched Tuesday at 12:40 a.m. to the Stonegate Apartments at 1815 N. Boomer Road in response to a 911 call. 

A woman made the 911 call claiming that her boyfriend hit her in the head with a hammer. The 911 operator advised her to seek shelter in a secure room with a locked door until police arrived. Shortly after, the call was disconnected and the operator was unable to reconnect with the woman, according to the police report.

Upon arrival at Stonegate, police had trouble finding the apartment where the 911 call had been made. With the help of some of the neighbors, police located the correct apartment, according to the report. 

When officers arrived at that apartment, they found the woman and her boyfriend. The woman had blunt force trauma to the back of the head and was taken to Stillwater Medical Center. There, she was treated for a broken skull and cut and then released, according to the report.

Jesus Valdez Bravo, 47, was arrested at the scene for aggravated domestic assault and battery, according to the report.

Valdez Bravo is awaiting a court date.
