    By: Action News Jax


    The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has arrested a suspect in an armed home invasion and rape that happened Monday at Countryside Village on Beach Boulevard.

    Travis Jakubowski, 28, was arrested late Wednesday for armed home invasion, armed sexual battery and false imprisonment, JSO Lt. Sharon Scott said.

    JSO said in the Monday incident, Jakubowski forced his way into the victim's home and sexually battered the victim.

    The police report said he beat the woman, overpowered her, threatened her with a weapon, raped her and drove away. The report said the woman’s hand needed stitches.

    The victim "showed great resilience," Scott said.

    The Baker County Sheriff's Office said it had a suspicious incident in its jurisdiction matching the description of the one in Jacksonville, Scott said.

    Major Crews with the Baker County Sheriff's Office said Jakubowski was never arrested in Baker County and never a suspect in any sexual assault cases there.

    Baker County sent Action News Jax a police report from that suspicious incident. It says Jakubowski stared down a couple at a gas station, showed them a machete and a sledgehammer and told them, "you know I got a .45."

    The couple later recognized Jakubowski from the sketch released by JSO.

    JSO worked with Baker detectives and found the suspect and the same truck that witnesses saw during the Jacksonville home invasion.

    We looked into Jakubowski's criminal history in Duval County and didn't find a violent past. He has been arrested for possession of marijuana, driving on a suspended or revoked license and making fake 911 calls.
