JONES COUNTY (WDAM) - A Gulfport man is in the Jones County jail charged with aggravated assault, burglary and attempted sexual battery of a woman.
A Jones County sheriff's investigator says Donald Ray Welch, 33, was arrested this week -- after he allegedly followed the woman home. The investigator says Welch posed as a surveyor when he confronted her.
The investigator adds, after stepping outside the door of her home, she was forced back inside the home with a knife. The woman fought back for several minutes -- and he later fled her home.
Tips from neighbors led to Welch's arrest.
