Pulaski County’s Most Wanted — a man also known to frequent the Pine Bluff area — surrendered himself to authorities Friday on a warrant for rape and terroristic threatening.
Colin Toatley was identified as the Pulaski County Sheriff Office’s Most Wanted in a press release issued Thursday by Lt. Carl M. Minden, who noted that Toatley’s records indicated a Little Rock address but that he was also known to frequent the Pine Bluff and Malvern areas.
The incident was reported at about 6:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, on Smalling Road in North Little Rock, according to the police report. Toatley allegedly followed two women home from Mid-Town Billiards in Little Rock after a night of drinking celebrating a birthday. The women met Toatley at the bar and he bought several drinks for them throughout the night.
Toatley allegedly offered to escort the women home, but they declined. He pressed the issue, saying he lived along the way, so the alleged victim agreed.
When the women arrived home, they saw the same man pulling up behind them. The alleged victim’s friend became sick from drinking and was taken inside, and Toatley allegedly followed and would not leave when asked. Toatley asked to use the restroom and then called the alleged victim to the bathroom, where he allegedly assaulted her and told her “I will kill you if you don’t shut up.” The alleged victim was able to strike him with objects in the bathroom, causing him to bleed profusely.
After the altercation, Toatley allegedly forced the victim to take a shower and then clean up his blood and broken glass from the bathroom.
The alleged victim ran to the neighbors and Toatley drove away. The intoxicated friend who had been asleep in the back bedroom during the attack allegedly became disorderly when interacting with police and was arrested for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and public intoxication.
