NAPOLEONVILLE, LA (WAFB) - A 16-year-old boy fought off a man who invaded his home and was allegedly trying to rape his mother, according to Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack.

On Sunday, November 16th, 2014 Assumption Parish Dispatch received a 911 call about a home invasion and attempted rape.

When deputies arrived, the woman stated that 58-year-old Henry Buggage had given her a ride home from the Alexis Sports Bar. After walking into her home alone, she locked the door behind her.

The victim told deputies she later found Buggage standing half naked in her living room.

The woman's teen son intervened during the attempted rape and reports say Buggage ran out of the door.

Buggage was later arrested and taken to the Assumption Parish Detention Center where he has been charged with attempted forcible rape, and home invasion. His bond has been set at $125,000.
