A $150,000 bond was set Tuesday for a Pine Bluff man currently on parole who was accused of breaking into a house and pointing a gun at another person.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Marvin Livingston, 39, with residential burglary, aggravated assault, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Reading from s probable cause affidavit from Detective Enrique Soto, Deputy Prosecutor Jay Gerard said police were sent to the area of East 2nd Avenue and Port Road on Friday in reference to a reported disturbance with what was said to be a murder suspect.

When they arrived in the area, they saw a man later identified as Livingston get out of a purple SUV and run into a house at 2008 Port Road.

Gerard said Livingston has had multiple prior felony convictions including for a second-degree domestic battery, third-degree domestic battery, fleeing, committing a terroristic act, first-degree battery, and on drug-related charges. He also has a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm pending from an incident in June.

Livingston was ordered to have no contact with the victims until the case is settled.
