BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Bossier City Police have arrested a local man for a home invasion last month that left a man injured.

Patrol officers arrested George Edward Clark Jr., age 51, Monday night at his residence in the 2500 block of Convent Street after detectives secured a warrant for his arrest.

Clark is accused of forcing his way into a home in the 2400 block of Trichel Street on August 24 while armed with a firearm and assaulting a man by striking him in the head with the weapon.

According to police, Clark also discharged the firearm during the incident. No one was struck by the gunshot. The victim was treated at a local hospital for a non-life threatening head wound he sustained from being struck with the weapon.

Police believe the assault stemmed from a verbal altercation earlier that day at the residence between Clark and the victim.   

Clark was booked into the Bossier City Jail on a charge of home invasion and was subsequently transferred to the Bossier Parish Maximum Security Facility. Bond is set at $50,000.
