LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

A man in Laurel was arrested for a third-offense aggravated assault charge Saturday, according to a press release from the Laurel Police Department.

Rodregis Travion Pruitt was taken into custody without incident at a residence in the 100 block of West 20th Street on Saturday.

Pruitt was transported to the Jones County Jail and is charged with one count of domestic assault - third offense.

He made his initial appearance in Laurel Municipal Court on Wednesday, and a judge set his bond at $30,000. 

On May 8, LPD officers responded to a call from the 100 block of 1st Ave., in reference to an assault, according to the press release.

When officers arrived, they met with victim who said she had been assaulted by Pruitt, who is the victim’s family member.
