Natchez man held on $100K bond

NATCHEZ — A Natchez man is being held on $100,000 bond after sheriff’s deputies said he kicked a door down and swung a baseball bat at residents inside the dwelling.

Jonathan Earl Myers, 58, 96 Kelly Avenue, Natchez, faces a home invasion charge after deputies said he went to a residence in the 100 block of Old Highway 84 Wednesday night, said Lt. Cal Green of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.

“When deputies got the call, the caller said a home invasion suspect was being detained by a victim,” Green said.

When deputies arrived at the scene, Green said, two females ran out of the house and said a male victim was still inside fighting with the suspect.

“They said the perpetrator knocked on door and was told to leave — we’re not sure if they knew him,” Green said. “They later heard him on the porch and then he kicked the door in and came in with baseball bat attacking everybody.”

The male victim, Green said, was able to detain Myers until authorities arrived.

Green said one of the female victims said her nephew had been asked not to return to the house sometime back and was seen dropping the suspect off at the house before the incident.

“(One of the victims) said when he kicked in the door, he was saying he was doing what he was told to do,” Green said.
