Bond set in alleged rape


A $100,000 bond was set Monday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly raped a woman in her apartment last week.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Roosevelt Woolfolk, 35, with rape.

According to a probable cause affidavit from Pine Bluff Police Department Detective Steve Rucker, the alleged victim said she was in her apartment at about 9 p.m. Sept. 21 when she heard a knock on her door, and because she was expecting a female friend, she opened the door.

Woolfolk allegedly came into the apartment and asked the alleged victim for money, then slapped her in the face twice before forcing her into a bedroom, taking off her clothes and raping her.

Rucker said the alleged victim is partially paralyzed and uses a wheelchair.

Woolfolk was located at another apartment and when he was questioned, he denied the incident, Rucker said in the affidavit.

Woolfolk who has prior convictions dating back to 1998 but nothing currently pending, was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.
