On November 28, Kelzon Terrel Clark, 23, a resident of Houston Street in Angie, Louisiana, was arrested by Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies after breaking loose from a deputy and fleeing into nearby woods.
Deputies responding to a report of an unsubstantiated domestic disturbance on Houston Street encountered Clark who initially provided a false name. Once Clark’s real identity was established, a deputy attempted to handcuff him, at which time Clark broke free and fled. Clark initially ran south on Houston Street and then west on Dixon Street before heading into nearby woods. A manhunt ensued with Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies and detectives along with a canine team from Rayburn Correctional Center.
The canine team and handlers eventually located Clark hiding in a densely wooded area. He was taken into custody without incident.
Clark was arrested and placed in the Washington Parish Jail on charges of being a fugitive from Bogalusa and resisting an officer by fleeing on foot. No bond has been set.
Clark was wanted by the Bogalusa Police Department for several offenses:
- Assault By Drive By Shooting (2 counts)
- Illegal Use of Weapons or Dangerous Instruments
- Attempted First Degree Murder (2 counts)
Clark was in the Washington Parish Jail on two previous occasions. On September 8, 2015, he was booked into the jail on a Probation Violation. He was released September 9, 2015 on order of the court.
On May 28, 2016, Clark was booked into the jail on a charge of Second Degree Attempted Murder. He was released July 2, 2016, after posting a $75,000 bond.
“Based on the evidence of all the charges against him, I think Mr. Clark has found a new home inside the Washington Parish Jail,” said Sheriff Randy Seal. “Our officers and officers from Rayburn Correctional Center did an excellent job identifying Clark, locating him in the woods and placing him in jail. I am so grateful for the outstanding working relationship we have with Warden Tanner and the staff at RCC. They are always ready to assist, day and night, regardless of the hour.”
