PB woman accused of second assault incident back in court Monday


For the second time in less than a week, a Pine Bluff woman was in court accused of aggravated assault.

Unique Jordan, 23, who is currently on probation, was allegedly involved in an incident Aug. 6 at an apartment complex in the 2600 block of South Olive Street, Detective Jeremy Oswalt said in a probable cause affidavit presented in court Monday.

According to the affidavit, a woman who lives in the apartment told police Jordan had come to the apartment to pick up her belongings and the two got into a verbal argument that turned physical.

Oswalt said in the affidavit that the alleged victim told police Jordan pulled out a handgun and threatened to kill the alleged victim, and the two then struggled and she slammed Jordan’s head into the wall several times and Jordan allegedly bit her on the wrist.

When Jordan was interviewed, she allegedly admitted having an altercation with the other woman but denied pulling a gun on the woman.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $5,000 bond for Jordan on Monday and ordered her to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.

On Friday, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Jordan after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with aggravated assault stemming from an incident last week.

In that incident, Jordan is accused of ramming a vehicle containing a man she had been involved in an argument with. Jordan was also ordered to have no contact with the man.

Jordan was placed on probation in January after pleading guilty to first-degree battery stemming from an incident in 2013.
