Sex offender arrested for aggravated burglary, attempted rape

LewisPONCHATOULA----On July 31, Officers were dispatched to a call involving an aggravated burglary and attempted rape, according to Chief of Police Bry Layrisson.

The victim stated that a male entered her home through a window of her residence while she was asleep. She confronted the unknown suspect in the living room in which he was wearing a mask partially covering his face and armed with a weapon. The suspect then attacked the victim and attempted to rape her. During the struggle, the victim was able to get a view of the suspects’ face in which she recognized as a sex offender from fliers posted in her neighborhood, Layrisson said. The victim was able to fight off her attacker and escape the residence with minor injuries.

Through quick action by Ponchatoula Detectives the suspect was later identified as Jimmie Lewis, 50, of 256 N. 12th Street. Upon further investigation, detectives were able to gather evidence which implicated Lewis. Lewis was brought in for questioning and after detectives confronted Lewis with the evidence against him, he admitted to the offense. Lewis has a lengthy criminal history which includes arrest for forcible rape, burglary, simple robbery, and failing to register as a sex offender. Lewis was on active probation at the time of his arrest.
