MEMPHIS, Tenn. – An Arkansas woman says she was rushed to Regional One Medical Center for emergency surgery after she was attacked by several women outside a Mississippi County home.

From her hospital bed on Monday, Amy Terry said her spleen was ruptured and all her organs were damaged by the beating.

“I had to have part of my intestine removed, a concussion on my head and the left side of my face is black and swollen,” Amy Terry said from her hospital bed Monday.

Amy Terry said she went to a friend’s house near Bondsville, Arkansas, to play cards, and when she got there, three women ambushed her. She said one of them held her to the ground while the others kicked her in the head and stomped on her stomach.

“They threw a rock through the car window and pulled me out the window,” Terry said. “She actually punched me in the face.”

Terry said he knew two of his attackers and believes it was because of a man. He said someone inside the home saw what was happening and was able to stop the women.

“He told them they were going to kill her,” Terry said.

The Mississippi County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident but has not arrested anyone so far.

Capt. Preston Williams said officers were called to an Osceola hospital early Saturday morning, about 12 hours after the attack, and had no idea the severity of Terry’s injuries.

“When our officers went to take the report, they thought it was simply a battery case. Apparently, after our deputies stopped taking the report, they discovered that her condition was worse than they thought and transferred her to Memphis,” Captain Williams said.

Terry’s loved ones said they want those responsible to be charged. Terry said she has a long road to recovery and she is not sure how long she will be in the hospital.

“I probably have a week or so left, they said, if I get better. “Right now I’m not getting better.”

Investigators said they plan to come to Memphis to get a more detailed statement from Terry.
