A $25,000 cash only bond was set Friday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly broke into his girlfriend house, stole her car, and injured her hand when she tried to get him to leave.
Jefferson County Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Keundre Coleman, 19, with residential burglary, theft of property and second-degree battery.
According to a probable cause affidavit from Detective Chris Wieland, there were several incidents involving Coleman and his former girlfriend over a nearly four-day period beginning Dec. 27 when she said she was at a friend's house when she received a text message from Coleman saying that he was at her house. She said she went home and found Coleman sitting at her table and when she tried to get him out,, she injured her right hand during a physical altercation.
The woman said Coleman had not lived at the house for two months and damaged a bedroom door.
On Dec, 29, police were called back to her house in the 1200 block of East 17th Avenue after she reported her car stolen. She said she had gone outside to warm up her 2016 Toyota Camry and walked back inside to finish getting ready. She said when she went back out, she found Coleman sitting in her vehicle. She said he refused to get out and when she refused to give him a ride home, he drove off in the car. Wieland said police recovered the car at Coleman's residence.
On Dec. 30, the woman said she went to Coleman's residence to return some of his property and while she stood at the door he jumped in the car and drove off. Police took a stolen car report and entered the information into the Arkansas and National Crime Information Center's databases. Little Rock Police found the car and arrested Coleman.
Wieland reported that he did not question Coleman on Wednesday because Coleman asked for an attorney.
Coleman was ordered to have no contact with the victim until the case is settled.
Records at the prosecutor's office showed that Coleman is currently out on bond on charges of residential burglary, a felony, violating an order of protection, a misdemeanor, and third-degree domestic battery, a misdemeanor.
