Re: Domestic Assault Barricaded suspect Incident


On Tuesday April 26th at 12:21pm officers with the Texarkana, AR Police department responded to the report of a possible domestic disturbance at a residence in the 900 block of County Avenue. The female victim advised officers that she had been threatened with a shotgun by the suspect who then barricaded himself in the residence by pushing furniture against the door.

Responding officers set up a perimeter around the residence and tried to contact the suspect several times by both telephone and PA system with no response. Members of the SWAT team and criminal investigation division were notified and responded to assist with the situation.

Officers on scene eventually made contact with the suspect by telephone and he exited the residence and was taken into custody on the front porch at approximately 2:04pm without further incident.

The suspect was identified as Jacob Darrell Lynn w/m 10/23/1990. Lynn was charged with Aggravated Assault on a family or household member as well as Terroristic Threatening 1st degree, both felonies, stemming from today’s incident. He was also served with warrants for Domestic Battery 3rd degree and False imprisonment 2nd degree, misdemeanors, that were issued in reference to a domestic disturbance at the same location on April 24th.

Lynn, Jacob D. W/M 20 YOA
