JONESBORO — A teen faces significant jail time after police say he threatened a woman with a gun and shot at her.
The victim, 20, told police that he forced himself into her home Sunday in the 600 block of Marshall Street. He then “began to beat (her) when another victim pulled him off,” the probable cause affidavit read.
“Wilson then put the gun to her head and threatened to kill her,” it states. Before leaving the scene in his vehicle, he fired a 9mm pistol several times.
Brandon Wilson, 19, of Jonesboro, wrecked the car near the intersection of Caraway Road and Belt Street, as he fled from the Jonesboro Police Department. He left the scene on foot.
Days prior, Wilson was accused of threatening a male resident of the home from his vehicle with a gun, the affidavit read.
Police matched the gun and its ammo to that found at the home and at the crash scene. Wilson was arrested Thursday in the 1600 block of Garland Drive.
District Court Judge Tommy Fowler found probable cause to charge Wilson with aggravated residential burglary, three counts of aggravated assault, aggravated assault on a family or household member, four counts of first-degree terroristic threatening, committing a terroristic act and third-degree domestic battering.
Wilson’s attorney Scott Troutt told Fowler that Wilson is a senior in high school and works at a local fast-food restaurant. The family hired Troutt because he felt he was in “some form of a trouble,” he said.
Trout said Wilson “stood ready to present himself” to police, but it wasn’t communicated to the department.
Fowler considered issuing a $250,000 bond, but due to his lack of criminal history, Wilson’s bond was set at $150,000, cash or surety.
”Concerned about the violence,” Fowler also enacted four no-contact orders between Wilson and each victim. Wilson is also required to wear an ankle monitor as part of his pre-trial release.
He is scheduled to appear before a judge at 1 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Craighead County Courthouse, 511 S. Main St., Jonesboro.
