Slidell Man Jailed for Attack on Neighbor

On Saturday (January 29, 2022), St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Eagle Lake Trailer Park, located at 1200 Eagle Lake Drive, in reference to a reported aggravated burglary.

Deputies discovered 59-year-old Thomas Bakes suffering from numerous injuries sustained after being attacked by someone who had entered his home abruptly and uninvited. Bakes was able to identify the suspect as his neighbor, 30-year-old Joshua Penton, before being transported to a local area hospital to be treated.

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies quickly located Penton and place him in custody. Major Crime’s detectives responded and investigated the incident further. As a result, Penton was charged with one count of aggravated burglary and one count of attempted murder. Detectives are still investigating in order to determine the reason for Penton entering Blake’s trailer and viciously attacking him.

Bakes is in stable condition at this time at a local hospital. 

Penton was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center. The inmate roster currently reflects that Penton was booked on two counts of Contempt of Court (with no bond) and Attempted First Degree Murder (with bond set at $200,000.00).
