JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

August 17 UPDATE: Three people were arrested after a mother claimed they held her daughters at gunpoint back in July.

According to court documents, 16-year-old Levonte Smith and 18-year-old Kevin Spratt are both facing an aggravated residential burglary charge in the case.

The alleged incident happened the day before Spratt turned 18, but both suspects will be tried as adults. 

They were given a $75,000 bond and are scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 28. 

The third suspect, a 14-year-old boy, appeared in juvenile court. 


Police said a woman claimed three people held her 11- and 12-year-old daughters at gunpoint Saturday.

According to the Jonesboro police report, officer Nathan Ivy was taking a report on Cedar Heights at about 6 p.m. when he was flagged down by a woman.

She said that while she was at work, around 2 p.m., three men came to her house and held the girls at gunpoint.

Her daughters said a boy named "Quincey" came to their house and asked if Sadon was there.

They said he wasn’t and the boy quickly left.

The girls then said "Quincey" came back about 10 minutes later and knocked on the door.

When they opened it, the girls said three people came into the house.

One boy reportedly had a white shirt around his face and the other had a black or dark blue bandana around his face.

Both girls said the boy with the bandana pulled out a black and silver handgun, chambered a round, then pointed it at the girls and told them to get on the ground.

The boys then heard the mother’s boyfriend upstairs and ran away, according to the report.

The girls told police "Quincey" has a tattoo of “some type of necklace around his neck and chest.”

They did not know his last name or the names of the other boys. They did say one of them was tall, but didn’t know exactly how tall.

The mother said she reported the incident as soon as she learned about it.

If you have any information about this incident, call Crimestoppers at 935-7867 (STOP).
