(WMC-TV) - The man whose home was searched Friday in connection with the Holly Bobo investigation was arraigned in court Monday on assault charges.

According to the affidavit of complaint, on February 6, Zachary Adams held a black revolver to a woman's head and threatened to kill her. He also reportedly pulled a knife on her while threatening to "gut" her.

Action News 5 has not been told why investigators were searching his property in connection with the Holly Bobo case.

At least four vehicles were towed away from the property in Decatur County where Adams lives with his grandfather. This was not the first time his property has been searched, according to neighbors. His home is located about 14 miles north of Darden, Tenn., where Holly Bobo went missing on April 13, 2011.

Adams has a record. He bonded out of jail in Benton County, where he faces drug charges, a few days before Friday's arrest.

Holly Bobo, a 20-year-old nursing student, was reportedly last seen by her brother as she was led into the woods near her home by a man wearing camouflage. Her family says she was leaving for school when they believe she was kidnapped.

One of Adams' neighbors says she remembers him and two of his friends following Holly around at a coon hunt dinner about one week before she disappeared.

Action News 5 is working to learn more about Adams' arrest and the investigation into Holly Bobo's disappearance. Stay with WMCTV.COM for the very latest developments.
