A North Madison Avenue man was charged Saturday with second-degree burglary and violation of a domestic violence order in connection with an early November incident.
Richmond police charged Jeanbaptiste N. Alexis, 29, after his former girlfriend reported he forced his way into her residence Nov. 4, refused to leave and then passed out. Alexis had been issued a domestic violence restraining order in October, the report stated. After Alexis passed out, the former girlfriend reported she left the apartment.
According to the report, he continued to violate the protective order by texting and calling the victim until she reported the offense to the police.
Officers located Alexis at Little Caesar’s Pizza and took him into custody without incident, the report stated. He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Tuesday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.
