GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -

A Gonzales woman bravely defended herself against attacks from her ex-boyfriend, according to Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office Lt. Col. Bobby Webre.

According to deputies with the sheriff's office, on Sunday, September 27, the victim returned to her apartment in Gonzales to find it ransacked and her belongings damaged. She filed a report with the Gonzales Police Department, indicating ongoing domestic turmoil with her ex-boyfriend Jonathan Beaureau, 35, of Sorrento. Deputies say the victim also produced a threatening voicemail from Beaureau.

The Gonzales Police Department helped the victim with applying for a temporary restraining order against Beaureau. Officials say Beaureau has been previously arrested on a number of charges, including simple battery, domestic abuse battery and possession of marijuana.

On Wednesday, September 30, while sitting in her car near the courthouse parking lot, Beaureau blocked the victim in with his truck and threatened her. While on the phone with 911, the victim pulled out her handgun and told Beaureau she would fire if he stepped any closer.

Beaureau was arrested on September 30 by the Gonzales Police Department and charged with improper telephone communications, stalking, and threatening a police officer. He also had a bench warrant for his arrest for failure to appear in court. His bond was set at $25,000 by Judge Tess Stromberg.

While incarcerated, Beaureau was served with a temporary restraining order and notice of a protective order hearing.
