Pine Bluff police arrest domestic abuse suspect after week-long search

Pine Bluff, Arkansas – A man accused of multiple acts of domestic abuse is now in custody after nearly a week-long search by the Pine Bluff Police Department.

Ongoing Investigation

In addition to the charges of first-degree domestic battery, Brown is also expected to face charges of abuse of a corpse. Furthermore, he was wanted on an absconder warrant from parole and probation. Authorities have indicated that further charges may be pending.

The victim, who was pregnant at the time of the incident, remains in intensive care at a local hospital. Investigators continue to monitor her condition closely as the case progresses.
