Pine Bluff man accused of cutting another man with box cutter


A reported armed disturbance at a house on the east side of Pine Bluff Saturday resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly cut another man on the arm with a box cutter.

Jerry Lee Washington, 27, had blood on his arm and the box cutter in his pocket when he was located by police, Detective Jacqueline Stevenson said in a probable cause affidavit.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said the incident occurred at 614 Belmont Drive, and the victim said Washington was his sister’s boyfriend.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 bond for Washington after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with second-degree battery.

Kearney also ordered Washington to have no contact with the alleged victim, and told him to come back to court Dec. 3.

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