LPD Arrests Mother & Son

By Debbie Gregory

The Lafayette Police Department arrested a mother and son for aggravated burglary, criminal trespassing, and assault following an incident in Lafayette last week. 

According to the Affidavit of Complaint filed On April 24, 2017, Officer Derek Carlisle was dispatched to 200 Meador Drive for an assault. Upon his arrival he spoke with a female complainant who stated that two individuals (later identified as Mrs. Leslie Jean Lee and her son, Nathan Clay Lee) had came onto her property looking for a male individual inside the home. Both suspects entered the home without the complainants permission after she had asked them to leave four different times. There was a no trespassing sign posted two feet to the right of the front door.

The report also stated that Mrs. Lee made her way over to the male individual who was asleep on the couch and began to strike him in the head. At this point the complainant tried to stop the altercation and Mrs. Lee came at her with closed fists. This is when the complainant began defending herself, and Nathan Lee bear hugged the female complainant causing marks on both of her upper arms.

After a thorough investigation 43-year-old Mrs. Leslie Jean Lee and her son 24-year-old Nathan Clay Lee, both of Lafayette, were located and placed under arrest. Both suspects were taken to the Macon County Jail and charged with aggravated burglary, criminal trespassing, and assault. Bond is set at $11,000 each and a General Sessions Court date is set for May 17.
