Arrest made in Port Arthur home invasion


A spokesperson for the Port Arthur Police Department told 12News that officers have made an arrest in a home invasion that happened last week.

James Lee Williams, 23, was arrested Friday on a motion to revoke probation on a previous home-invasion.  Officers say while Willams was being questioned, he admitted to last week's home invasion which happened in the 3800 block of Amherst Avenue. 

The victim in the Amherst Avenue home invasion, a 73-year-old woman, was injured as she struggled with the robber.

Williams is currently held without bond in the Jefferson County jail.
