Ridgeland Police arrested 33-year-old Kyshon Jenkins, for a burglary and sexual assault they say happened on North Green Street in Ridgeland. Jenkins is accused of assaulting the 61-year-old woman in her home on North Green Street on August 16, when the victim awoke to find Jenkins standing in her bedroom, brandishing a handgun.
There was DNA evidence collected, which linked Jenkins as the person who entered the house through an unlocked back door sometime between 10 and 11 p.m. Police were initially alerted, when the woman was able to escape once Jenkins began rummaging through her belongings. She got to a neighbor’s house to call 911. Jenkins is being held at the Jasper County Detention Center.
