Suspect breaks into home, threatens man with knife, steals iphone

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Jonesboro Police are searching for a man they say busted into a home and threatened a victim with a knife.

According to the Jonesboro Police report, an unknown black man wearing a black shirt, baggy blue jeans, and a black and white bandana over his face kicked in the back door of a home on Angelus Drive.

In the report it states, that one of the home owners ran out the front door when the suspect entered, but a man stayed inside and was as held down with a knife to his throat by the suspect.

The homeowners told police the suspect kept asking, "Where are the drugs at." When the homeowner said he didn't know, the suspect stole an iphone and ran from the home.

The only description the couple could give police was, an unknown black man wearing a black shirt, baggy blue jeans, and a black and white bandana over his face.

Jonesboro Police continue to investigate.
