Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a 30-year-old man after he allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend's residence, threatened her with a knife, and tried to sic a pit bull dog on her Sunday morning.

Obrian Duke, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County jail on a first-degree felony charge of burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit another felony. He was also charged with interfering with a 911 emergency call, which is a Class A misdemeanor. His bond has been set at $75,000.

According to a press release, CSO deputies responded to a disturbance call at a residence on Highway 7 West. When they got there, they learned the suspect had fled the scene on foot. Duke was found walking down the road with his pit bull a short time later.

After further investigation, the NCSO deputies learned that Duke allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend's home with a knife in one hand and a pit bull at his side.  While he was in the residence, Duke allegedly tried to get the pit bull to attack his ex-girlfriend.

The victim tried to call 911, but the suspect allegedly destroyed the phone and started choking the woman. After the victim managed to escape from her ex-boyfriend, and used her cell phone to make the 911 call.

The pit bull was released to animal control officers.
