Man arrested on charges of home invasion

A Ruston man was arrested over Memorial Day weekend on charges of home invasion.

A Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to the area of Second Street and Hickory Street on May 30 in reference to a male who was disturbing the peace. Dispatch advised the deputy that LPSO had received multiple complaints about the male jumping on vehicles and running through yards. While the deputy was in route, dispatch advised that the male had forced his way into one of the complainant’s house. 

When the deputy arrived, he found the male on a front porch standing on a chair and punching the ceiling. The male, Salvin Albritton Jr., 55, was taken into custody. 

When the deputy talked to the complainant, the individual stated Albritton forced his way through the front door of the house but the complainant was able to restrain Albritton after a struggle in which Albritton continued to fight him. The complainant said the struggle moved to the outside of the house, which is when the deputy arrived.

Albritton was booked at the LPDC.
