FORREST CITY, AR (KAIT) - Officers of the Forrest City Police Department had to travel to North Little Rock to take a man into custody after he allegedly opened fire on a car with two children inside.

Forrest City Police say 20-year-old Anthony Woods was arrested for aggravated assault after police found that he allegedly opened fire in Forrest City Nov.4 on Goldie Hicks and his passengers; two passengers in the car were children ages three and five.

Police say Woods was with Hicks' soon-to-be ex-wife, when Hicks drove by. Police also say Woods and Hicks' wife began yelling at Hicks before Woods pulled out a pistol from his pants and fired several shots into Hicks' car.

According to the report, the car's rear window was blown out, and one bullet went through Hick's sister's sleeve into the passenger head rest.

Woods is charged with aggravated assault. He is being held in lieu of $15,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in St. Francis County District Court for arraignment on January 26.

Woods is also charged with terroristic threatening in connection to another case and failure to appear on two separate domestic battery in the third degree charges.
