Man Arrested After Home Invasion

A home invasion Wednesday morning on Willow Bend ended safely for an elderly couple.

It all started when a man knocked on their door asking to make a phone call. Thirty-one year-old Alfred Jackson ended up in jail.

The homeowner got suspicious and offered to make the call for Jackson. When he opened the door to hand Jackson a pen and paper, Jackson forced his way inside the home and began struggling with the elderly man.

His wife called police and Jackson took off. Police caught him in nearby Kiwanis Park in Lufkin. He's charged with burglary of a habitation.
