Police seeking assault suspect


Pine Bluff police are asking for help in locating a man who allegedly broke into a house on the east side of Pine Bluff last week and pointed a gun at two people.

Edward Jerome White, 34, should be considered armed and dangerous and is wanted on probable cause of aggravated assault, police Lt. David Price said in a press release.

According to the police report, White forced his way into a house in the 1700 block of Colonial Drive on June 18 after a woman opened the door, thinking it was another person.

The woman said White went into her brother’s room, pointed a gun at him and threatened “to blow his face off.”

White also allegedly threatened to kill the woman, the report said.

White is a black male, 5 feet 7-inches tall with black hair and brown eyes. His last known address is 1908 Saracen Drive.

Anyone with information about White is asked to call the Detective Division at 730-2090 or police dispatch at 541-5300. All calls will be kept confidential.
