JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

An Ellisville man has been charged with rape after the victim contacted his probation officer. 

According to a news release issued by the Jones County Sheriff's Department,  Arnett Phillips, 37, was released from prison on probation in March.

The victim stated she and Phillips had been dating for several years. On Monday they argued all day where she alleges Phillips made threats against her, including burning down her house if she contacted law enforcement. 

That evening, the argument became physical as she was trying to go to sleep. 

According to the news release, Phillips shook her, hit her and threatened to kill her if she did not get up and go to town with him. 

He took her phone and her car keys, forcing her to ride to a nearby bank and withdraw cash from her account. 

The pair drove to another residence where the victim stated Phillips and another person “smoked a pipe together” containing dope. 

As they were leaving, Phillips was given DVD’s that contained pornography. 

When they got to the victim’s residence and went to bed, Phillips began grabbing the her.  

At one point he pulled a pocket knife on her, forcing her to submit to him, according to the release. 

The news release also stated while watching pornography, Phillips threatened to kill her, and began raping her for well over an hour. 

The victim stated the following morning Phillips acted as if nothing had transpired. 

She convinced him she was leaving the home to work. 

When he did relent and allow her to leave, she reported directly to his probation officer. 

Phillips was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with one count of rape, three counts of robbery and one count of kidnapping. 

His bond was set by Judge Billie Graham for $10,000 per count, totaling a $50,000 cash bond.  He was also issued a no-contact order.
