Jonesboro Police Department Responds to Barricaded Suspect

Written by LaGanzie Kale

April 15, 2018

On Sunday, April 15, 2018 Officers with the Jonesboro Police Department received a call
requesting they respond to a Domestic Disturbance. At approximately 6:30 pm Officers were
called to the 200 block of Puryear Street where a witness told them they observed an adult
male subject physically attack an adult female and then drag her inside a home.
Contact was attempted at the home and no one would come to the door. Officers began
receiving text from subjects in the home that the male subject was refusing to let anyone
leave the home and he was possibly armed with an unknown type of firearm.
Officers were able to identify the male subject as 31 year old William Neal Toney through
information given to them by witnesses. Officers on the scene were able to confirm that
Toney has outstanding Felony warrants for his arrest through another agency.
SWAT team members and the Crisis Negotiation Team were activated and called to the
scene. Just prior to the implementation of those teams, Toney exited the home and
surrendered to Jonesboro Police Department Officers.
Toney was taken in to custody without further incident and the female was contacted and
found to have minor injuries.
William Toney will be left in the custody of the Craighead County Jail with Domestic Battery
charges and a hold will be placed on him to be handed over to the agency with the Felony
