A $5,000 bond was set Wednesday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly broke into a house in the Dollarway area and struck a man*** in the face.
Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Darren Snow, 23, with residential burglary and second-degree battery.
Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Snow was arrested after police were sent to a residence on North Richard where the alleged victim told police Snow and another person had attacked him, and Snow hit him in the face with a set of brass knuckles, resulting in an injury to his eye which required treatment at Jefferson Regional Medical Center.
According to a police affidavit, Snow refused to identify the person who was with him at the time of the incident.
In addition to setting the bond, the judge told Snow to have no contact with the alleged victim and to come back to court Aug. 15.
Snow said he would hire his own attorney.
