Fort Walton Beach police have arrested 50-year-old Jeffrey Sowell, a man wanted on charges of sexual battery and battery by strangulation. 

Deputies spotted the fugitive at an apartment complex off of Billfish Avenue, that’s when he fled.

He later re-appeared on a roof before jumping into a neighboring yard to try to escape.

When Sowell entered the neighboring apartment’s garage, residents demanded he leave, confronting him at gunpoint.

He was then apprehended by deputies and is now also charged with resisting arrest and trespassing.
