LOGAN — A 38-year-old Logan man was arrested after allegedly breaking into an apartment and assaulting a woman, according to law enforcement. Brandon Lee Jones was booked Wednesday, July 10, into the Cache County Jail.

According to an arrest affidavit, Logan City Police officers were called to a domestic dispute on report of a male individual seen dragging someone inside the apartment. The caller also reported hearing screaming and someone yelling for help.

When officers arrived at the apartment, a woman answered the door crying, shaking and acting scared. She identified the suspect as Brandon Jones, who had allegedly left moments earlier and walked over to the Cache Valley Transit Center.

Police located Jones laying on a bench. He originally denied being at the apartment and claimed he was at a friend’s house. He also said he did not lay a hand on the woman, the probable cause statement detailed.

Officers detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from Jones. When asked how much alcohol he had drank, he reportedly replied, “not enough.”

The alleged victim said law enforcement had been called to the apartment earlier in the night and advised Jones to leave. She claimed he left but came back later, climbing inside after breaking out a screen in the kitchen window. He then grabbed her, placed his hands around her throat and ripped out a chunk of her hair, and took her phone.

Police found the broken screen to the kitchen window. They also spoke to a neighbor, who had heard and seen some of the dispute.

According to jail records, Jones was booked on suspicion of aggravated burglary, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and other offences. He is being held in jail, pending arraignment on formal charges in Logan’s 1st District Court.
