Body cam footage of Skinner's arrest

A Lufkin man is accused of kidnapping a woman and sexually assaulting her.

According to the Lufkin Police Department, around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday police received a report of a woman who had been sexually assaulted.

The woman identified the suspect as “Mon,” her previous neighbor. Authorities later identified “Mon” as 30-year-old Zataymon Skinner, of Lufkin.

Authorities say the woman was leaving her job at a fast food restaurant around 12:30 a.m. when she noticed “Mon” standing at her car.

The woman says he told her “get in or I’ll you.” The woman said Skinner allegedly drove her to a dead end in the 2100 block of Wood Avenue and ordered her to get in the back seat.

She said Skinner then forced her out of the car, sexually assaulted her and placed her inside the trunk. As he began to drive away, she managed to open the trunk and escape.

The woman said Skinner noticed and stopped the vehicle and began to chase her, but then got back in the vehicle and drove away.

Around 11 a.m. Saturday, Lufkin PD responded to a disturbance at 402 Holland Street in which a man named “Mon” had fled.

Officers were able to take Skinner into custody for evading arrest. He was found to have a parole violation and a Smith County warrant for theft.

Skinner was arrested for aggravated kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
