Redfield man held on $50,000 bond for alleged second-degree sexual assault

A Redfield man who was arrested Sunday will have to post a $50,000 bond to be released from the adult detention center after an investigation into a sexual assault involving a juvenile.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Dylan Bull, 19, with second-degree sexual assault.

Reading from a probable cause affidavit from Redfield Police Detective Teri Patterson, Deputy Prosecutor Lisa McGriff said an officer was sent to a house on Donna Drive Sunday at 3:45 a.m. to investigate a report that three juveniles were sneaking out a window.

That same day, a Redfield officer received a phone call from a Jefferson County Deputy who said he had been contacted by a person who said he saw that Bull had been arrested and wanted to report that Bull had sexually assaulted him in 2021 when he was 17.

McGriff said Patterson took a recorded statement from the male on Tuesday and the victim said he had spent the night at Bull’s house and at about 4. a.m. he awoke to Bull fondling him. He said he jumped out of bed and left and about a week later, Bull contacted him and apologized.

In addition to the current allegation, McGriff said Bull has a pending second-degree sexual assault with similar circumstances and is a victim from Jefferson County.

Bull was ordered to have no contact with the victim until the case is settled.
