BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A New Orleans man wanted on attempted murder charges was captured by the Baton Rouge City Constable's Office at the Greyhound terminal in Baton Rouge.
On Wednesday, September 30, 2015, officers with the New Orleans Police Department say 30-year-old Joseph Davis went into a house in New Orleans, through a window, and attacked a woman who was sleeping in her bed. Reports from the police department say Davis began hitting her, biting her and telling her he was going to kill her as he began strangling her.
The victim told police Davis also damaged a $1,500 flat screen television as he ran from her house.
The victim then told police she learned Davis was en route to Baton Rouge on a Greyhound bus.
On October 1, 2015, officers were able to reroute the bus to the Greyhound terminal in Baton Rouge and arrest Davis before he escaped.
Davis was arrested on a warrant from Baton Rouge and two warrants from Orleans municipal court.
He was charged with attempted second degree murder and home invasion. He is awaiting extradition to New Orleans.
