Assault suspects sends apology message to victims in bank parking lot affair

The suspect arrested for a physical assault on a Fort Smith couple last week has reached out to the couple and penned a letter of apology as well as making an offer to pay the medical bills incurred during the attack.

Brandon Owens, who was arrested on Wednesday on a pair of felony charges related to the incident and bailed out on a $1500 legally suffficient bond in a little more than two hours,

In the message to victim Courtney Purvis, Owens said he was reaching out to the women despite being told by the police to not contact her. He admitted the attack and d/said he had dealt with blackouts his entire life.

This is the text pf his message it its entirely and is presented in the same form it was sent to the victims:

"The police told me not to contact you but I need to reach out so that I may apologize. I know that there is nothing I can say or do to make up for what I have done to you and your partner. I know what I did is inexcusable and despicable. That day was a Frightening realization for me. I have dealt with blackouts since I was a teenager but this is the first time I ever hurt anybody. I'm so sorry for what I did and I know that there is no excuse I do need to pay for what I have done. And I will pay all medical bills you and your partner incurred because of me. I have read most of the comments on your post and I full heartedly agree with most of the people. What they say is how I feel and I do need to get help. I have already made arrangements if they don't lock me up first. No one should have to go through what I put you three through. I'm so sorry.

That person you met Friday is not who I really am. I apologize for the piece of s*** I was Friday."

Today in Fort Smith received s copy of the message from one of the victims in the incident.
