JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A St. Francis County man is scheduled to appear in a Jonesboro courthouse in June after he was arrested on suspicion of throwing bricks at a woman earlier this year, Jonesboro police said Wednesday. 

Cordero L. Riley of Madison was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and first-degree criminal mischief in connection with the incident. 

According to a probable cause affidavit in the case, Jonesboro police went to a home in the 1500-block of Monica Street around 11 p.m. on April 27. The victim told police what happened. 

"The victim and witness stated that Cordero Riley, who is the victim's boyfriend, became upset with her after she had put his clothes outside. She said that she would not allow him in the residence so, he went around to the rear of the residence and busted out a window," the affidavit read. "When she exited the front of the residence he threw a large landscape through the back window of her vehicle and then threw one at her, striking her in the arm." 

Police also allege that Riley then tried to run over the woman. 

"While she was standing at the rear of her vehicle, which was parked in the driveway that Cordero Riley drove towards her in an attempt to strike her with his vehicle but she was able to move out of the way and he struck her vehicle with his," the affidavit noted. 

A $10,000 cash/surety bond was set for Riley Wednesday by Craighead County District Judge David Boling. 

Riley will appear in circuit judge June 29.
