Killeen Police Arrest Man for Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer

Officers with the Killeen Police Department and the Bell County Sheriff’s Department work together to arrest a Killeen man charged with Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer.

On Friday, October 24, 2014, detectives with the Killeen Police Department obtained a complaint affidavit from the Bell County District Attorney’s charging 25 year old Harlan Lee Conway with Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer. This charge stemmed from an incident on Wednesday, October 15, 2014, in the 5000 block of Saddle Ridge Dr., when Conway charged at the officer with a knife; Conway was detained at that time but later released for further investigation into the incident.

Killeen detectives have been attempting to serve this warrant since it was issued by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on Friday, October 24, 2014, but were unable to locate Conway. Through their investigation they learned of a residence on Oakala Rd. where it was believed that Conway was staying. Deputies with the Bell County Sheriff’s Department and detectives with the Killeen Police Department arrived at that residence earlier today. Before they could speak with anyone at the residence, Conway was seen coming outside then going back inside. They were able to convince him to surrender and he did so peacefully just before 6:00pm this evening.

Conway was taken into custody by the Bell County Sheriff’s deputies and transported to the Bell County Jail where he awaits arraignment. Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke recommended a $250,000 bond for the Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer charge.

The Killeen Police Department continues to investigate this case and other allegations that have been made. Because these allegations are in the early stages of investigation, we decline to comment on them at this time.

We would like to thank the Bell County Sheriff’s Department for their assistance with this incident.
