Alleged home invasion results in arrest


A reported home invasion in central Pine Bluff on Monday morning resulted in the arrest of a man who reportedly kicked the door in, and threatened to kill the occupant.

Mac Clinton Cobb, 46, told police that he and the alleged victim had been in a relationship for six months before he ended it, Detective Steven Rucker said in a probable cause affidavit.

Rucker reported that officers were sent to the house in the 700 block of West 21st Avenue at about 7:30 a.m., and talked to the female victim, who said she was in her bedroom when Cobb came in and threatened to kill her.

The female also reported that Cobb grabbed her phone and ran, telling her not to call the police.

Cobb was located “down the road,” from the house, Rucker said in the probable cause affidavit.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 bond for Cobb after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with residential burglary and terroristic threatening.

Kearney also ordered Cobb to have no contact with the alleged victim, and told him to come back to court Feb. 19.

Cobb said he would hire his own attorney.
