During the morning of Wednesday, March 27, 2019, the Natchitoches Police Department’s Traffic and Patrol Division responded to Jackson St. in reference to a home invasion. Upon arrival officers immediately spoke with the homeowner, who stated that her ex-boyfriend, Jaylaun Brown, forcibly gained entry into her residence through the front door which was barricaded by furniture. The homeowner then told officers that once inside of the residence Brown began striking her in the face causing injury. The homeowner then explained to officers that Brown then held a knife to her neck and forced her to have sex with him.
