Man accused of assaulting girl, 12

JONESBORO — A man faces up to six years in prison after a 12-year-old girl accused him of inappropriately touching her.

The victim’s mother told the Jonesboro Police Department on Oct. 10 that Edward Toolie, 37, of Jonesboro, touched the victim’s genital area, according to the probable cause affidavit.

In an effort to be alone with the girl, Toolie quickly responded to her request for juice. The victim’s mother said she was falling asleep at that time, the affidavit read.

In a forensic interview, the victim told police that Toolie came up behind her and touched her genitals under her clothing. The girl also said the suspect simulated sex above her clothing.

“(The victim’s mother) went to check on them … and Toolie was behind her daughter with his hand rubbing her private parts,“ the affidavit read.

Detective Bill Brown told Special Judge Jarrett Cobb on Friday that Toolie fled to Mississippi and failed to come in for questioning. Records show that he was arrested Thursday.

Cobb found probable cause to charge Toolie with sexual indecency with a child and seat $100,000 cash or surety bond. As part of his pretrial release, a no-contact order was also enacted.

Police: Woman attacked children

JONESBORO — A mental health evaluation was ordered Friday for a woman accused of attacking two girls in the 700 block of Richsmith Lane.

The 14-year-old victim told police Wednesday that she was taking some of her mother’s belongings from their room, according to the probable cause affidavit. As she was trying to call her parents, she said Bianca Clemons, 31, of Jonesboro, tried to take her phone away from her.

The teen concealed the phone in her bra and Clemons, who is not her mother, reached into her shirt to get it. A 10-year-old female family member tried to get the teen away from Clemons and was hit in the back and “pushed by her face into the wall.”

According to the incident report, police observed several scratches on the teen’s chest and red marks on the 10-year-old’s back.

Special Judge Jarrett Cobb found probable cause Friday to charge Clemons with second-degree battering causing physical injury, third-degree domestic battering, second-degree endangering the welfare of a minor.

She was being held on a $1,500 cash or surety bond. As part of her pretrial release, a no-contact order between her and the girls and a mandatory mental health evaluation from Mid-South Health Systems were enacted.
