Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies are asking for the public’s help while they continue to look for a Rapides Parish man that fled from them during a domestic abuse investigation on Sunday evening according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies are currently looking for 25-year-old Bailey D. Goodman, W/M, Hgt/509, Wgt/198 with light brown hair, and hazel eyes of the Flatwoods area in Rapides Parish.

Goodman is wanted by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office on outstanding criminal arrest warrants signed by a 10th Judicial District Court Judge for Domestic Abuse Battery, Possession of CDS Schedule II Methamphetamine, Simple Escape and 2-Counts of Resisting an Arrest.

On Sunday evening, November 20, 2022 at approximately 6:36pm, Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies responded to NATCOM 911 Center reports of a domestic disturbance in the 100 block of Lateral Lane near Natchitoches, La.

Deputies say upon their arrival, they learned Goodman allegedly committed a battery on a dating partner.

Goodman was reportedly hiding in a vehicle parked in the yard.

Deputies located Goodman and assisted him out of the vehicle, placing him under arrest for domestic abuse battery.

During a search of his person incidental to his arrest, deputies discovered suspected methamphetamine on his person.

While walking and attempting to place Goodman in the rear of a patrol unit, he jerked away from a deputy fleeing into some nearby woods.

Deputies summoned assistance from the Winn Parish K-9 Tracking Team to assist in a search.

During the search, deputies discovered Goodman, while handcuffed behind his back, apparently succeeded in removing his pants and boots and then rolled in mud to cover his body.

Several NPSO, and NPD Units assisted by the K-9 Tracking Team searched for Goodman until shortly after midnight, but were unable to locate him.

The victim was issued a La. Victim & Registration Form.

Goodman has ties to the Many, and Shreveport areas.
