Two indicted for aggravated assault; defendants accused of stabbing each other and a third person

Three people were treated for stab wounds following an altercation at a Texarkana, Texas, residence in April and two of them were indicted for aggravated assault last week.

Premium Warez Clark, 33, and Karla Chiffon Oliver, 40, were both indicted last week by a Bowie County grand jury for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon stemming from an altercation in the early hours of April 9 at a house on W. 14th Street in Texarkana, Texas, according to probable cause affidavits.

Clark, Oliver and others were allegedly socializing at the residence when an argument erupted over a missing cellphone. Oliver and her spouse were allegedly in the car preparing to leave when Clark stabbed her arm through her open driver's side window.

Oliver allegedly left but returned later with her spouse and others to confront Clark. The confrontation allegedly turned violent again with Clark and Clark's spouse suffering stab wounds. Clark's spouse's wound to the back of her leg was so severe that she "was going in and out of consciousness" while Texarkana, Texas, police officers attempted to render aid.

Clark's spouse allegedly claimed it was Oliver who stabbed her. That woman, Clark and Oliver were all treated at a local hospital for stab wounds.

A woman residing near the house told police that she witnessed Clark and Oliver fighting before Oliver left at about 11 p.m. April 8. The witness allegedly reported seeing Oliver and others return around 1 a.m. April 9 and that Oliver hugged the woman who would later suffer a serious stab wound before others ran into the residence and dragged Clark outside. The witness did not report seeing the actual stabbings.

Oliver is charged with two counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, both of which are punishable by two to 20 years in prison. Clark is charged with one count of felony aggravated assault. Court records show Clark has a misdemeanor assault with bodily injury charge pending from the same date.

Both Clark and Oliver are being held in the Bowie County jail. Oliver's bail is set at $100,000. Clark's is set at $75,000. Their cases are assigned to 102nd District Judge Jeff Addison.
