A 33-year-old North Little Rock man was armed with a rifle when he threatened to kill a woman who lives with him early Wednesday, authorities said.
Police say the victim reported Walls attacked her shortly after midnight in their home in the 300 block of Dixie Lane and then threatened to killer her with a rifle.
The victim told responding officers Walls had passed out on the bed with the weapon, the report said. Police found him there with a rifle at "arm's length," according to a North Little Rock Police Department report.
Police say the rifle had its serial number scratched off and that Walls is a felon, so he couldn't legally possess the gun.
The victim suffered "minor cuts" in the attack, the report said.
Walls remained in the Pulaski County jail Wednesday morning with bail not yet set.
