BR man arrested
in touching incidents

LSU police arrested a 48-year-old man Monday accused of inappropriately touching a teenager and young woman at an LSU summer camp.

Police booked Kelvin Ray Mills, 231 21st St., Baton Rouge, into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count each of sexual battery and simple battery, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Mills walked up to a 17-year-old girl and 20-year-old woman Wednesday near vending machines on the first floor of Kirby Smith Hall at different times and touched one on the inside of her thigh and touched the other on her lower back, the affidavit said.

Surveillance video shows Mills talking to and touching one of the victims.

Police Capt. Cory Lalonde said Mills was a custodian at the time of incident.

LSU spokesman Ernest Ballard said Mills is suspended pending termination proceedings before a civil service board. Ballard said he did not know if Mills planned to appeal his termination.

BR man arrested
in theft of two TVs

A Baton Rouge man was arrested Monday morning in the Wal-Mart parking lot at Cortana Mall after he admitted to trying to steal two big-screen TVs valued at about $2,000.

East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies booked Kirk Anthony Williams, 22, 1737 Bellmeade Drive, into Parish Prison on counts of attempted felony theft, unauthorized entry of a business, resisting an officer and simple escape, prison records show.

A Wal-Mart manager heard an alarm sounding at a side door and found a 55-inch TV near the door, then heard another alarm coming from the back employee entrance and found a 50-inch TV near that door, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The manager said she saw Williams in the parking lot after the first alarm sounded, then saw him walking out the front entrance after the second alarm sounded, the affidavit said.

While in custody, Williams removed his handcuffs and, after being recuffed, ran a short distance before falling head first in the parking lot of the Lowe’s next to the Wal-Mart, the affidavit said.

When Williams got up and started running again, one deputy deployed his stun gun and subdued Williams, the affidavit said.
