All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.
Hot Springs Police Officer Green reports that he was dispatched to the 700 block of Park Avenue on October 21, 2020 around 2:30PM in reference to a death threat over the phone followed by a car ramming another vehicle in traffic. The victim’s vehicle contained the child of the suspect.
According to the arrest report, Joshua Timotheus Henderson, 27, of Rector Street in Hot Springs, told the victim over the phone “If you leave, I’m going to run you off the road and kill you”.
The victim shares a child with the suspect. That child was in the victim’s vehicle as she spoke with police via phone. As she was on the phone with police and driving, Mr. Henderson began ramming his vehicle into hers.
A no contact order against Mr. Henderson was entered by the court in August 2020. This activity violated that order.
Officers that were en route to the victim located Mr. Henderson’s vehicle and arrested him. The vehicle he was in showed evidence of having struck the victim’s vehicle.
Mr. Henderson was transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. He is charged with Felony Aggravated Assault, Felony Terroristic Threatening, Endangering The Welfare Of A Minor and Violation Of A No Contact Order and was initially being held without bond.
