NEWPORT—A woman said she was asleep Monday morning, June 30, when she allegedly awoke to someone wearing a 'scream'ť Halloween mask who put duct tape over her mouth and held her down on her bed with a knife to her throat, the Cocke County Sheriffâ's Department reported.

The victim, Mitzi Turner, 33, Shale Road, Newport, said she awoke about 9:35 a.m. and saw the suspect straddle her, beat her with the gray duct tape roll, and choke her with their hands before Turner got loose, reached up, and pulled the mask off the suspect, Deputy Sheriff Hollis Emmons reported.
