A $10,000 bond was set Monday for a man who allegedly pointed a gun at a woman and her infant child Saturday.


Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Donnell Burnett, 35, with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a prohibited weapon.


According to a probable cause affidavit from Police Detective Cassandra Briggs-McAfee, Burnett had a sawed-off shotgun at the time.


McAfee reported that police were sent at 10:27 p.m. to an apartment in the 4500 block of Union Street in response to a reported armed disturbance. When they arrived, the alleged victim said she and Burnett had argued after he became intoxicated, and she said he pinned her down on a bed.


According to the affidavit, the alleged victim said she was able to get away from Brunett and went outside of the apartment. She said Burnett came out of the door and pointed a sawed-off shotgun at her while she was holding her 2-month-old child.


McAfee said in the affidavit that Burnett went inside and she called police, and Burnett allegedly came back outside, pointed the gun at her again, and allegedly told her "he didn’t care about her calling the police."


Burnett was allegedly too intoxicated to be interviewed, McAfee said in the affidavit.


In addition to setting the bond, Burnett was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.
