Muldrow woman charged with assault after barricading herself in home
Thursday, March 23, 2022 - A Muldrow woman was charged March 16 with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Agnes Vielma, 20, could face up to 10 years in the Oklahoma State Penitentiary if convicted of the felony charge.
The probable cause affidavit filed in the case reveals that on Feb. 26, Sequoyah County dispatch alerted deputies of a call regarding an unresponsive 38-year-old woman on Bawcom Road east of Sallisaw.
Dispatch then advised that a female caller was talking very quietly and saying her friend had passed out the day before and wouldn’t wake up. The caller also said something about a gun.
After arriving at the scene, a deputy announced over his radio that he had a suspect at gunpoint and advised that the suspect also had a weapon pointed at him. Other deputies soon arrived at the location to assist.
The woman, later identified as Vielma, refused to comply with commands to drop the weapon and walked back inside the residence, leaving the front door open. At 11:28 p.m. Feb. 26, the woman barricaded herself in the home.
Vielma told deputies she was not going to jail and leaned out the front door and pointed a gun at Undersheriff Charles House and a deputy, who were forced to retreat to the side of the home.
Vielma then came to the door with what she said was a knife and asked if she would go to jail for throwing it at the horse in the front yard. She threw the knife at the animal, but missed. Vielma then came to the door armed with a hammer.
At 12:33 a.m., a deputy was able to sneak up on Vielma and deploy his Taser. She was then arrested.
After clearing the residence, Misty Taylor, the purportedly unresponsive woman, was found asleep in her bedroom. Once awakened, Taylor refused deputies’ commands to leave the room and was arrested for obstruction and contributing to the delinquency of a minor for providing 20-year-old Vielma with alcohol.
While searching the home, deputies discovered a black handgun sitting just inside the front door.
