A juvenile in Thibodaux, Louisiana, was arrested for allegedly beating a 61-year old woman who refused to perform oral sex on him, according to a release from the Thibodaux Police Department Tuesday.
Thibodaux Chief of Police Bryan Zeringue announced the arrest of the male juvenile on a charge of simple battery of the infirmed.
On the evening of May 9, the victim told police was walking on the 300 block of Federal Circle when the juvenile allegedly approached her and told her to perform oral sex on him. When she refused, the victim told police the juvenile began beating on her, striking her in the head and neck area. Several other juveniles were with the attacker at the time of the incident, according to the release.
Police say a witness tried to scare the juvenile away, but the juvenile told the witness that he would attack her as well. The juvenile, along with several others, fled the area when the witness told them the police were being contacted.
After further investigation, officers were able to have the juvenile and his father visit the Thibodaux Police Department. Initially, the juvenile claimed he was not in the area at the time of the incident.
Further questioning led to the juvenile admitting to being in the area, but he told police that he didn’t commit the offense.
The juvenile was placed in the Juvenile Detention Center for his charge, pending a 72-hour hearing, with Thibodaux Judge Mark Chiasson.
