An investigation into an alleged rape that occurred in October resulted in the arrest of a man Thursday who had also been sought for more than two years by officials in another state.

During a court hearing Friday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Fenton Tolbert, 30, was wanted on felony charges in Chicago, and had a criminal history that covered more than six pages, many of those from Illinois.

Kizer said Tolbert was identified as the suspect in a rape that occurred Oct. 29 in Pine Bluff.

Detective Jerry Lambert reported that the Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children and Families hotline received the initial information, and turned the case over to Pine Bluff police to investigate.

Kizer said the female victim, who was believed to be a minor, said she had been staying with a relative and at about 4 a.m. she saw a person, later identified as Tolbert, come into the room and he assaulted her sexually.

Lambert reported that Tolbert was arrested Thursday and after he waived his right to an attorney, reportedly told investigators he “was drunk and didn’t remember anything.”

At Kizer’s request, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $250,000 cash only bond for Tolbert after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with rape.

Bridgforth also ordered Tolbert to have no contact with the alleged victim, and to come back to court March 23.

Tolbert said he would hire his own attorney.
