Texas man forces himself into woman’s apartment, hides in bathroom

Denton police arrested a man who reportedly forced his way into a woman’s apartment on Wednesday,  and hid in the bathroom shortly after a Subway was robbed earlier that evening.

Dallas Morning News reports that around 8:20 p.m., authorities were called to the Subway off of Mayhill Road after a man with a cap and faked beard on, carrying an “unknown weapon” entered the store and robbed it. Witnesses told police that the suspect fled to a Residence Inn afterwards.

As officers searched the area, they found clothing and a driver’s license that belonged to Marcus Lorenzo Jackson. At around 11:35 p.m., police received a call from a woman who said a strange man forced his way into her apartment, off of South Shady Shores Road, and hid in her bathroom. She told the police she was able to escape through a window with no injuries, but the man kept himself holed up in the apartment.

When police arrived, Jackson was still in hiding, but after around an hour of trying to convince him to come out, Jackson relented. He was arrested and charged with trespassing.

Denton police spokesman Shane Kizer said that Jackon wasn’t charged with Subway robbery because they’re still investigating the incident. Police are also trying to determine if Jackson was involved in a different, previous Subway robbery that took place on Monday night at the restaurant’s South Interstate 35E location.

Anyone with information should call the Denton police. Jackson is being held behind bars on a $50,000 bond.
