Bond set in alleged assault, threatening

A $100,000 bond was set Monday for a man who allegedly pointed a gun at a woman and threatened to kill her.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Curtis Johnson, 21, with aggravated assault, terroristic threatening and with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said the alleged victim told police Johnson had picked her up at her house on Saturday and took her to a party where he forced her to act inappropriately.

Detective Steve Rucker said Johnson then took the woman to his apartment where he allegedly pointed a weapon at her and told her he would kill her if she told anybody.

The alleged victim said the weapon had a red dot and when it was pointed at her, the dot was on her. According to Rucker, police found a shotgun with a laser sight on it in Johnson’s closet.

Kizer said Johnson had previous felony convictions in Tennessee.

In addition to setting the bond, Bridgforth ordered Johnson to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Johnson.
