According to Sheriff John Ballance, on the night of Monday August 1, 2022 Bienville Parish deputies arrested Phillip A. Page, white male, 39, of the 13000 block of Hwy 4 , Bienville on arrest warrants charging him with Second Degree Kidnapping and Aggravated Second Degree Battery which stemmed from an incident on July 8, 2022.
Page and a female accomplice are alleged to have tied up an individual and tortured him for undisclosed reasons until he was able to escape and report to authorities.
Page had been eluding deputies since the incident until his capture on Monday following a short chase by deputies. Page had reportedly stated that if confronted by law enforcement “things would get bloody.”
Deputies located Page on Madden Mill Creek Road at which time he fled to a residence on Watts Road where he was confronted by deputies.
Page, who was operating a 2001 Ford F-150, ignored deputies’ commands to exit his vehicle and surrender. Page fled the scene in the Ford pickup followed by the deputies. In the short pursuit, Page attempted to force a fire department vehicle off La. 154.
Shortly thereafter, Page was forced off La. 792 just north of its intersection with La. 154. His vehicle came to rest behind the Jamestown Post Office. Deputies surrounded Page, who was still seated in his vehicle, and observed that he was in possession of a long gun. Deputies maintained cover while giving Page commands to surrender.
Following a two hour standoff, Page surrendered without further incident.
Page was additionally charged with Aggravated Flight From An Officer, Possession Of Firearm By A Convicted Felon, and Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia. He was lodged in the Bienville Parish Jail pending a 72 hour hearing.
