CENTERTON (KFSM) — A Centerton woman was arrested last week after she allegedly shot at a 14-year-old boy whom she accused of trying to rape a neighbor’s dog.

Kerrie Lenkerd, 40, was arrested on Tuesday (April 25), according to an arrest warrant. She is facing a charge of felony aggravated assault.

On Monday, April 17 Centerton police talked to Lenkerd, who said that she spotted the teenager out her window in her neighbor’s yard. She told police that the boy was in his boxers and he was sexually assaulting the neighbor’s dog.

Lenkerd said the boy has done this before, so she took a gun from her safe and approached him and ordered him to get on the ground, the warrant states. She said the boy jumped the fence and so she went after him and fired a shot into the ground to scare him. She said the boy ran away leaving behind some clothes and an iPad.

Officers spoke to several neighbors who said they heard the gunshot and then spotted the boy running away, the document states.

The following day officers spoke to the boy, who said Lenkerd came around and pointed a gun at him and told him to put his hands up, the warrant states. He said he didn’t see her carrying a badge so he jumped the fence and ran away in his underwear. He said Lenkerd fired a shot about five or 10 seconds after he jumped the fence.

The boy told police that when he got home he changed clothes and told his mom a false story before meeting with police.

Lenkerd was taken to the Benton County Detention Center, where she was held on a $5,000 bond.

      Is God pleased with violent peoiple or displeased with violent people? Did God protect violent people or did God eventually kill off violently minded people?

      Edited: Is God pleased with violent people or displeased with violent people. Did God protect violent people or did God eventually kill off violently minded people?

        God directed the killing of people, directly killed people, and mandated that people that lay with animals be put to death. Isiah (chapter 35?) also mentions unicorns, satyrs, and dragons, so, maybe not the best touchstone. I grow weary of you defending pedophiles and enabling those engaged in bestiality.

    Oy Vey! The boy was massaging the doggies procreative appendage and the lady saw something she couldn’t process so she freaked out! Shoot the laddie she thought! That’ll learn him! Oh Arkansas, what have ye become? SMH. Now you know why we need DNA testing and Eugenics.

      Assaulting a dog is criminal. And she didn’t think shoot him. She intended to place him under citizens arrest. She fired a warning shot. So we can see you’ve got some dog meat history. Please dont tell us about it.

        People like to lie. Jacking a dog off is not penetrating a dog. The rapist is the woman wanting to penetrate the human with a bullet. That is not assault. No one was bothering her. Why is work out your own salvation pissed and shut upon? That is what Jesus wants us to do. Terrorizing the person with a weapon is not obeying God’s law.

    I stand by her. Police need to do something about this little pervert. He will grow up to be the next Zachary Holly who killed 6 year old Jersey Bridgeman.

    And I guess the bestiality boy is a victim??? he gave no reason for being out in his neighbors yard in his boxers? That dogs owner should bond this lady out of jail….

    She should take it to trial and ask for jury nullification. I bet a jury of good Arkansans would oblige. If she wins, the DA is toast in the next election too.
