Woman accused of stabbing boyfriend during argument


A Pine Bluff woman was arrested Sunday after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend during an argument.

Diane Redmon, 31, allegedly admitted the incident, telling police she “was tired of him putting his hands on her,” Detective Cassandra Briggs-McAfee said in a probable cause affidavit presented in court Tuesday.

Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Pugh said police were sent at 12:08 a.m. Sunday to the 1400 block of South Spruce Street and found the alleged victim bleeding from a cut on the left side of his face.

According to the affidavit, the alleged victim said he and Redmon had a “heated argument” and she stabbed him with a knife. Afterward, he said he left walking and called police.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $10,000 bond for Redmon, who Pugh said had no prior convictions or pending charges, after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with second-degree domestic battery.

Redmon was also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.

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