A Natchitoches man wanted by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office on several outstanding warrants was recently arrested following a call for service near Natchitoches according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.

On Thursday July 1, 2021 shortly after 6:00pm, Deputies assigned to the NPSO Patrol Division, NPSO Impact Unit and Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force Criminal Patrol Unit responded to NATCOM 911 Center reports of a male identified as Darius Williams threatening a female acquaintance at a residence in the 6000 block of La.

Williams was reportedly possibly armed.

 Deputies were familiar with Williams, knowing there were outstanding warrants for his arrest and knew he was a flight risk.
