MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A North Memphis man is facing charges for beating his sister after she accused him of inappropriately touching a young family member.

Donald walker is charged with domestic assault.

It happened Monday night in the 3700 block of Whittier.

Blanchie Hales has lived in that neighborhood for almost 35 years and said it has always been violent. "When I first moved here in 1980, I had a cocktail bomb thrown at my house."

She was not surprised to hear Donald Walker, who lives just a few doors down, was arrested for beating his sister, Donandra.

"That wasn't the first time the brother and sister went at it," Hales said.

Police said Donandra confronted Donald about touching a young family member inappropriately which is when the situation turned violent.

Police said Donald pulled out a gun and hit Donandra over and over.

They said the attack continued onto the street when Donald dragged her out here.

They said Donandra fought him off and ran for help at a corner store, but not before he fired a shot into the air.

Police arrested Walker after he tried barricading himself inside his home.

Hales said she is glad he is off the street, but she is desperate for change. "I wish a lot more around here would go to jail and they'd catch them," she said of others who she claim cause trouble in the neighborhood. "They just get to shooting when they get riled up. They don't care!"

Walker's bond is set at $2,500.

The Department of Children's Services was also called to investigate allegations of him inappropriately touching a family member.


  • R U kidding me? $250-Who set this bond?

    Now lets get this straight. He is accused of molesting a minor, pistol whipping/assaulting his sister, firing a weapon inside the city and he gets a $2500 bond!!!! Is the weapon stolen, does he have a permit to carry it on the street? He then tried to barricade himself in the home which is resisting and obstruction, and HE GETS TO WALK FOR $250 dollars!!! Who set this bond? Why do these articles never list the judges names? This is a perfect example of why crime is rampant in this city. Unfriggin believable.

      No doubt about it. There’s a missing piece in this puzzle that law abiding citizens aren’t supposed to know about.
      Maybe WREG will investigate and provide more information. This story just doesn’t add up.

      I agree, so this guy will get out on bond, and he will most likely go back to the same house and start more trouble or go and commit a crime somewhere else. Hope that the bond that News3 has in this article is wrong.

    PEOPLE – This is what is so cool about being a drug thug in Memphis! You commit crimes, and basically get off with no punishment. Just look at the clowns that are attempting civil service positions – some lie, assault others in hospital parking lots, utter racial slurs, and basically offend and miss-represent their constituents. Others just do not provide any leadership, and back away from commenting on important issues. These I speak of just don’t drink the Kool-Aid. They drink from the tax-payer’s money, hide behind a fa├žade while defending themselves in tantrums and tirades of jibberish. They are worthless human beings, and a sorry representation of a Memphis citizen, by any standard.
