Police search for suspect in aggravated assault


Pine Bluff police are asking the public to help locate a man wanted for allegedly threatening two people with a gun.

Police consider Anthony Simmons to be armed. He is a 38-year-old male who is 6 feet tall with a slender build, Officer Richard Wegner said in a press release.

Simmons allegedly threatened two people with a gun Tuesday morning at a factory in the Industrial Park.

Simmons drove a red truck to the parking lot where he allegedly confronted the two and displayed a black .9-millimeter gun, according to the release. Simmons then followed the man to an Exxon gas station on Dollarway Road before driving away. The woman said she also drove to the gas station and stopped to warn the man that Simmons had allegedly followed him.

Anyone with information about Simmons’ location is asked to call the Dispatch Center at 870-541-5300, or the Detective Division at 870-730-2090. All calls will be kept confidential.
