Set to go on trial later this month in a July 11 robbery, Tibor J. Jackson Jr. has been charged with threatening a 21-year-old woman with a pistol during an argument at a First Hill apartment complex.

Speaking with officers following the June 6 incident, the woman said Jackson pulled a handgun after he and others confronted her about an earlier altercation in which a friend of Jackson's had been jailed. Prosecutors contend Jackson, 23, threatened to kill the woman.

Court records show Jackson had been released from the King County Jail months after posting bail in an alleged attack on a South Seattle man.

Facing second-degree assault and first-degree robbery charges in that case, Jackson is accused of beating a man with a concrete block and metal grate after an altercation at Waid's Restaurant & Lounge,in the 1200 block of East Jefferson Street.

Witnesses told Seattle police they saw Jackson and several others force the man to the ground and strip him of his pants. According to charging documents, one said she saw Jackson drop the concrete block on the man twice before leaving the injured, unconscious man on the ground.
