Police arrested Courtney Devonee Holloway, 36, late Monday evening in Temple.

He was identified late Monday afternoon and was wanted for a parole violation on a burglary of a habitation charge, police said.

Officers were sent to 1107 Leslie Circle at around 11 a.m. Monday after a woman reported she had been forced inside her apartment Sunday night, threatened with a gun, and held against her will, police said.

She was able to escape Monday morning, police said.

Killeen SWAT and K-9 units were sent to the scene and old FM 440 was blocked in both directions as police secured the area.

Officers think Holloway fled before the officers arrived.

Holloway is black, about 6-feet tall and weighs about 160 pounds.

He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact Bell County Crime Stoppers at (254) 526-TIPS.
