Julie Ann Bowman
A North Platte woman was charged with a series of felonies Thursday after an alleged battle with another woman.At 11:32 a.m. Thursday, police went to the 1300 block of West 19th to check out a reported assault. A woman there said the suspect, Julie Bowman, had left.
The victim said she and Bowman were acquainted. They got into an argument over the phone about a theft, the woman told police.
According to the police report, Bowman allegedly threatened the victim that she was coming over to cause her bodily harm. The victim told police that Bowman showed up and immediately punched her in the face, bit her and pulled some of her hair out in an altercation near the front door.
The victim said she retreated inside and shut the door on Bowman, but Bowman circled around and came in the back, pulled a knife, brandished it, then dropped the knife and instead produced a stun gun and shocked the victim.
Both women went to the ground and the victim said she was able to get the stun gun away from Bowman, who left, taking some DVD movies with her, according to the police report.
The victim had injuries on her face and arm, and the officer noted loose hair falling from her head, according to the report.
Police recovered a knife and stun gun at the scene.
Bowman was found a short time later in the 1100 block of South Tabor and taken into custody. She was charged with use of a weapon to commit a felony, burglary and aggravated assault. She is held on $50,000 bond.
