Bond set in alleged assault


A $10,000 bond was set Thursday for a Pine Bluff woman who allegedly threatened two people with a knife after an altercation Wednesday.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Rokaya Amos, 23, with aggravated assault.

Deputy Prosecutor Rik Ramsey said police were sent to the reported disturbance at 1903 W. 34th Ave., and spoke with two alleged victims as well as a third person, who was not identified in the police affidavit.

Detective James Huff said in the affidavit that Amos allegedly tried to fight another woman, then pulled a knife on her and a male who was at the scene, threatening them. Amos also allegedly tried to run over the male with her vehicle.

When she was interviewed, Amos allegedly said the other woman hit her vehicle with a baseball bat, and the man hit her vehicle with his.

At Ramsey’s request, Kearney ordered Amos to have no contact with either of the alleged victims until the case is settled and told her to come back to court Sept. 18.

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