Woman booked for protective order violation

A woman was arrested Friday after she allegedly violated a protective order by repeatedly harassing the victim.

Roston Police responded to a South Jones Street residence about noon Friday regarding a harassment complaint. The victim said Yolanda Torbor, 39, of Ruston, had been repeatedly coming to her door cursing and yelling at her. The victim said she allowed Torbor into her residence to stop her from bothering her. Torpor allegedly told the victim she would beat her up if she contacted the police.

A protective order on behalf of the victim had been served on Torbor two days earlier. She was located staying in a tent in the victim’s backyard. After brief questioning, Torbor was arrested for violating the protective order. When an officer attempted to handcuff her, she pulled away and resisted. Once in custody, she refused to put her legs inside the patrol car so the door could be closed.

Torbor was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for violation of a protective order and resisting an officer.
