Woman arrested after allegedly pulling knife on another woman


A Pine Bluff woman was arrested Friday after she allegedly threatened another woman with a knife.

Lois Williams, 43, was allegedly intoxicated at the time of the incident, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing Monday.

Police reported that the victim said she had gone to Williams’ residence on Clement Drive to pick up her nephew when she and Williams got into a verbal altercation.

Kizer said the victim reported that Williams pulled a large knife on her while she was sitting in her vehicle, then broke a window on the vehicle with the knife.

Police reported that Williams waived her right to an attorney and reportedly admitted pulling the knife on the other woman, and also reportedly admitted she was intoxicated at the time.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 bond for Williams after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with aggravated assault on a family or household member.

Kearney also ordered Williams to have no contact with the alleged victim, appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent her, and told her to come back to court Dec. 17.
