Woman Accused Of Assaulting First Responders

A Texoma woman is behind bars facing assault charges.

First responders were dispatched on a woman who cut her throat in the 500 block of North Lamar Thursday afternoon. Fire and AMR called police, and when officers arrived, they said they found three fire fighters struggling with Juanita Ozuna, 40.

Police said Ozuna had a knife with an exposed blade and was swinging it. Officers said she kicked and spat at the first responders. Firefighters and officers were able to get her under control and detain her.

Officials said the person who originally called for first responders had been cut on the hand by Ozuna. Ozuna was taken to the hospital for medical treatment and then arrested.

She was charged with three counts of Aggravated Assault and one count of Harassing a Public Servant.
