Little Rock police on Friday arrested an apartment manager accused of forcing her way into a resident's home and attacking a man.

Officers were called at about 3 a.m. to Westbridge Apartments at 2123 Labette Manor Drive off John Barrow Road. A resident said the building supervisor, Nitaya Jackson, 37, had used a master key to enter her apartment without permission, according to an arrest report. Jackson's ex-boyfriend was inside, and she cut with him a knife during a confrontation, the report states.

Police said a laceration on the man's arm required several staples to close. The man was not identified in the report.

Further details were unavailable.

Jackson was charged with aggravated assault, second-degree domestic battery and residential burglary. She was being held in the Pulaski County jail Friday night.

Man, 34, faces 10 child-porn charges

The Pulaski County sheriff's office Thursday arrested an England man on child-pornography charges.

Haschel Edward Capps, 34, faces 10 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing sexually explicit material involving a child.

In Ocotber 2014, Nathan Mathews, an acquaintance of Capps, told deputies that he'd found a hard drive containing photos of nude young girls at his residence, according to a sheriff's office report. Mathews said he'd been out of town, according to the report, and he'd given Capps access to the home to care for his animals.

The report says Mathews gave the hard drive to the sheriff's office.

Agency spokesman Capt. Carl Minden said prosecutors reviewed the case and decided this month to charge Capps.

Deputies arrested Capps about 4:05 p.m. Thursday at his workplace, a Valero gas station at 8921 Fourche Dam Pike, according to an arrest report.

Capps was being held at the Pulaski County jail Friday night.
