A Ruston man is facing charges of aggravated battery, simple criminal damage to property and two counts of home invasion following an incident around 10 p.m. Monday in Ruston.
No bond had been reported as being set as of Tuesday night for Carlton Williams, 39, of 1421 Davis Blvd.
Williams’ arrested affidavit says that Ruston Police Department officers responded after Williams reportedly committed an unauthorized entry into a West Charlotte Street residence that at the time only the complainant’s two minor children were inside the home.
When the victim arrived at the residence, the arrest affidavit says that she said that Williams committed aggravated battery by striking her multiple times on the hands and legs with a metal pipe, which officers reported caused bruising to the victim’s right shin.
After allegedly committing the home invasion/aggravated battery, Williams reportedly exited the residence and the victim locked him out. She reported that Williams then kicked the residence door in and made a second unauthorized entry into the residence.
Officers reported that during the second home invasion “Williams caused damage to the door frame of the front door, rendering it inoperable.”
