Police: Woman questioned about sexuality, shot after fistfight

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - A woman is recovering from gunshot wounds after she reportedly got into a fight with a man who asked about her sexual orientation Friday afternoon. 

According to a Little Rock Police Department incident report, around 12:30 p.m., 23-year-old Vallesha Boles told officers she was walking into a gas station on the 3100 block of Roosevelt Road, when a man inside the business approached her and asked her if she were gay. 

Boles reportedly said she did not know the man and it was none of his business, before the two began a fistfight.

Boles told police she walked outside after the fight and the suspect shot at her several times, striking her in the leg and buttocks areas. 

Emergency responders took Boles to a local hospital, where she is expected to recover from her injuries.

The suspect reportedly fled westbound on Roosevelt in a gold Oldsmobile Alero. He is described as a black man in his mid-twenties, approximately 5'6'' and 150 pounds.

If you know anything about this incident, you are asked to contact the Little Rock Police Department at (501) 371-4829.
