Raceland man sought after domestic incident

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office is looking for a 23-year-old Raceland man who is wanted for domestic abuse battery, second-degree sexual battery and several other charges.



Earlier this week, deputies made contact with a woman regarding ongoing domestic abuse.

Deputies discovered the woman to have injuries to her face, limbs and body and they learned that the person beating her was Jawaun Robertson, 23, of Raceland. She was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Through investigation, deputies learned several incidents had occurred between the suspect and victim over the course of a week in which Robertson struck the victim multiple times.



During one incident, Robertson struck the victim with a handgun. Robertson is prohibited from possessing firearms due to a previous conviction of domestic abuse battery.

During another incident, the suspect committed a sexual batter while inflicting bodily harm to the victim.

Prior to her contacting police, he also took her cell phone and threatened her not to contact law enforcement.



Following the investigation, warrants were obtained for Robertson’s arrest. The charges include Felony Domestic Abuse Battery, two counts of Misdemeanor Domestic Abuse Battery, and Second Degree Sexual Battery. He is also wanted for False Imprisonment (Offender Armed with Dangerous Weapon), Possession of a Firearm by a Person Convicted of Domestic Abuse Battery, and Theft.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help to locate Jawuan Robertson. Anyone with any information on his whereabouts is asked to submit a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers Bayou Region by phone at 1-800-743-7433 or online at www.crimestoppersbr.org.
