Man accused of threatening woman, child with gun

DOLPH, AR (KAIT) - A Melbourne man accused of threatening a woman and her child posted bond over the weekend.

Stephen Cagle was arrested Friday by the Izard County Sheriff's Department on a warrant for charges of breaking and entering, terroristic threatening, endangering the welfare of a minor, criminal mischief and domestic battering.

Sheriff Tate Lawrence said the charges come from an incident on Nov. 16 in Dolph involving a woman and her small child.

Cagle is accused of kicking in the door of a residence, assaulting the woman and later breaking the window of her vehicle as well as threatening to kill the woman and her child with a gun.

A bond of $30,000 was posted Sunday by Cagle. He was released and has been given a court date.
