From May 9
A Shreveport teen accused of raping and beating an elderly woman on Saturday is now in police custody.
Shreveport Police say they arrested 16-year-old Calvin "C.J." Breakfield on Hickory Street about two blocks north of Hollywood. Police found him standing on a street corner with some other people.  Police say he was arrested without incident.
Calvin Breakfield Sr., CJ's father, speaking only to KSLA News 12 says his son has a long history of mental illness.  That he was under the care of a psychiatrist and was prescribed several medications that he had stopped taking.  Those include Wellbutrin, Abilify, Seroquell, and Hydroxyzine. They diagnosed with a form of schizophrenia.
Breakfield senior says his son was no longer allowed in public schools and had gone from group home to group home over the years.  He says he had just returned to the family home in December and that everything was fine until about March.
The older Breakfield says he tried repeated calling CJ's probation officer but mental health workers would show up and Calvin would run away.  He says the police had been called to the home 10 times within the past month the last time just this past Sunday, the day after the attacks.  A neighbor says he has called the police on CJ three times for alleging threatening to shoot him.
The father says his sons criminal past includes anything from petty theft to fighting.
He says under normal circumstances he would not believe his son would do commit the crimes he's accused of, but without his medication he says anything is possible.
