Duson Police arrested Jonathan Perry, 35-years-old of Natchitoches, after he entered a home in the 400 block of Toby Mouton Road in Duson uninvited while armed with a handgun. Once inside Perry was said to have brandished the Derringer style handgun at two female residents while demanding to know the whereabouts of a sister to one of the victims. Apparently, Perry was attempting to avenge the death of a friend who had been murdered in Lafayette.
Perry, who has a prior felony conviction and is on parole, was found blocks away from the crime and taken into custody without incident. The gun was recovered in a vehicle Perry was driving.
Perry has been booked into the Lafayette Parish Jail on a charge of Home Invasion, 2 counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Bond has been set at $100,000.00 on the aforementioned charges and additional unrelated charges are pending a bond as well.
