A College Station man was arrested Monday after police say he broke into a home and groped a woman.

According to Bryan police, around 8:15 a.m., authorities were called to a home in the 2500 block of Glacier Drive on the report of a burglary in progress. A family in the home explained that a man wearing dark clothing had knocked on the door of their home. When a woman answered the door, police said Erick Deshawn Pratt, 46, forced his way in before grabbing the woman’s arm and attempting to drag her outside. She broke free and ran to the back of the home to alert her husband. Meanwhile, police said, the couple’s daughter emerged, and the intruder groped her. Pratt then said he wanted to paint in the backyard but eventually left.

Pratt was later found at the intersection of Yosemite Drive and Santa Fe Trail, police said. Authorities said Pratt, who was sweaty, was likely under the influence of PCP and needed to be transported to a local hospital. Five officers were needed to wrestle Pratt onto a stretcher, and he had to be subdued using sedatives, a report notes.

Pratt is charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison; resisting arrest, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail; and public intoxication, a Class C misdemeanor. He was released from the Brazos County Jail on $19,455 bond.
