PROVO, Utah – A man was arrested after police said they found him pounding the front door of a family he had allegedly threatened with rape and murder.
Jeremy John Duvall, 21, was arrested by deputies from the Provo Police Department who reported that Duvall also “made several comments about wanting to rape and kiss one of our female officers” when he was arrested.
Probable cause documents said officers ordered Duvall away from the home’s door when they arrived at a residence at Locust Lane in Provo, and then detained him while talking to the home owner. While he was detained he made comments about the female officer.
The complainant provided police a journal he said Duvall left at the home’s driveway the previous night. It was said to be full of comments alluding to the death of the man who called police, and his wife and daughter.
The complainant told police Duvall had been trying to contact his daughter for six months by phone and through social media and had also sent her sexually explicit photos as well as contacting her at the residence.
He also told police Duvall had been at the home three times on that day, one of which was recorded by a doorbell camera the man was willing to share with police.
Police took Duvall to the Utah County Jail and said he continued to make obscene comments about wanting to rape females. Police also said in the court documents that they observed him make threats to the man who called and heard him threaten to rape the man’s daughter.
