A Ponte Vedra Beach man was recently sentenced to 30 years in prison for the sexual assault and battery of a Jacksonville woman at her Beach Boulevard home in April 2017.

According to a Feb. 15 news release from the state attorney’s office, Travis Christopher Jakubowski, 28, was found guilty by a jury of armed sexual battery and burglary with intent to commit assault or battery.

On April 17, 2017, Jakubowski entered the woman’s home where she was babysitting a 2-year-old and attacked the victim, who he did not know, according to the release. He forced her to the bathroom at knifepoint where a struggle ensued. He then forced her into the bedroom where she was sexually assaulted.

Neighbors of the woman described Jakubowski’s vehicle to police, and the victim identified him following his arrest.

Jakubowski will be designated as a sexual predator.
