Police: Teen attacked by peers during her birthday party


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Little Rock Police said a teen was apparently attacked by a small group of her peers during her own birthday party on Friday.

According to Lt. Sidney Allen, police were called to Chili's on Rodney Parham Road around 10 p.m. in reference to a fight. Allen said police questioned a man who was seen pushing several younger girls away inside; he apparently told them that he was celebrating his daughter's 18th birthday at the restaurant when a group of teenage girls grabbed his daughter by the hair and started hitting her.

In a police report, the man testified that he refused to sit aside and let someone else harm his daughter, so he jumped up to defend her and break up the fight by pushing them away from her.

Sign-hanging, island building closing lanes in LR


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Road crews building traffic islands and hanging signs will close lanes at Little Rock's Big Rock interchange next week.

The state Highway and Transportation Department said Friday that the eastbound lane of Financial Center Parkway from Hermitage Road to Interstate 630 will be closed so crews can build traffic islands amid a construction project. Work will take place next Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Next Tuesday night, a westbound lane of Interstate 630 will be closed near its intersection with Interstate 430 so crews can hang overhead signs.

The Big Rock Interchange in west Little Rock is the state's busiest intersection. It received its name from a rock outcropping uncovered in early stages of construction.

My Town Hero nomination: Maria Harris

My Town Hero nomination: Maria Harris

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Patricia Downes has entered a My Town Hero nomination for her late mother, Maria Harris.

Downes said her mother immigrated to the US from Dusseldorf, Germany, after surviving World War II. She married Downes’ father, who happened to be an American soldier; she met him while working on the American Military Base in the Base Exchange.

Because of her father’s profession as a soldier, Downes’ mother was left to care for her children in foreign country on her own on several occasions and for lengthy periods of time.

“We never had a lot of money, but she made sure we were well fed and clothed,” said Downes. “She struggled with health issues, but you never knew how much pain she was in. I hope that I can age as gracefully as she did.”

Oncethe family moved to the Ozarks, Harris apparently fell in love because they reminded her of her home that she had to leave behind.
