Bank Guard Injured in Little Rock

Man arrested in incident at Regions Bank branch on Baseline Road.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A bank security guard is recovering from a head injury after police say she was attacked by a man in a Friday morning incident.

The Little Rock Police Department says Terrance Jones, 40, is jailed on charges that include
robbery, theft of property, and possession of a firearm by certain persons.

The security guard at the Regions Bank in the 6100 block of Baseline Rd. told police the man hit her face with his fists when she tried to escort him outside after he had become upset when his check could not be cashed. The blows knocked the guard to the ground, where she hit the back of her head and briefly lost consciousness. She was taken to the hospital for injuries police said were not life-threatening. She told police the man who attacked her had taken her service weapon from its holster.

According to the police incident report, a teller told police the check Jones had tried to cash was written on the wrong account. Jones reportedly became upset and when a bank manager tried to help him, he refused to talk to her.

Police spotted Jones (who matched the suspect description) walking near the bank when they were driving there to investigate the guard attack. When they tried to talk to him, he allegedly ran towards them and reached into his jacket as if he was going to draw a weapon.

When officers approached him, the man reportedly displayed a handgun and pointed it at his head. Police say he surrendered after a short standoff and was taken into custody without incident.
