Baton Rouge police and fire briefs for July 31, 2014

Man stabbed, injured in tussle over truck keys

Baton Rouge police say a woman stabbed a man in the arm Tuesday while they were inside his truck, grappling with each other for the truck’s keys.

The two were parked outside the home of Glynnis Scott, 47, at 3012 Calumet St. at about 7:30 p.m. when she told the man she needed the truck to get something to eat, according to the affidavit of probable cause. But the man, who is not identified in the document, refused, saying he needed the truck for his job repairing generators and other equipment.

They started grappling, and then Scott grabbed one of the man’s knives from the truck’s center console and stabbed him in the arm, the affidavit says.

Police arrived as Scott, covered in blood, was getting out of the truck. An officer heard her say, “I should have killed you,” the affidavit says.

Scott told police the man struck her first, pulled the knife from his pocket, and she had to take it out of his hand.

Scott was booked into Parish Prison on a count of attempted second-degree murder.

Ex-boyfriend accused of false imprisonment

After a woman’s ex-boyfriend locked himself and her in her bedroom and started hitting her in the face, two of her sons kicked down the bedroom door in an attempt to rescue her, sheriff’s deputies say.

On June 24, James Anthony, 41, entered the woman’s Dumaine Avenue home — near where he lives — headed straight for her bedroom, where he locked the door behind him and started hitting her, according to the arrest warrant. That was when the woman’s two sons, who live in the home with their mother, kicked the door down. Anthony then hit both of them in the face as well, the warrant says.

Anthony grabbed about $20 worth of clothes and fled, the warrant says.

Anthony, of 13806 Dumaine Ave., Baton Rouge, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on counts of domestic abuse battery, simple battery, false imprisonment and theft.

Second suspect booked in shooting

Baton Rouge police arrested a second suspect in the June 19 attack on Leonidas Drive in which the victim was shot in the face by one person after another man used a stick to smash the window of the vehicle the victim and his girlfriend were in. Three infants in the rear seat were sprayed by the glass and one of the babies was hit with the stick.

Darryl White, 24, of 1006 Southwest Drive, Baker, was booked Tuesday into Parish Prison on a count of attempted first-degree murder, accused of shooting the victim.

White told police he was driving home from work with a friend when he saw a fight break out among several people, parked and walked up to investigate, according to the affidavit of probable cause. White claims the victim, who had wrestled the stick from the other attacker, tried to hit him, so he shot the victim in the face.

The man accused of smashing the car window, McKinley Coleman, 25, was arrested Thursday and booked on counts of principal to attempted first-degree murder, second-degree cruelty to a juvenile and aggravated criminal damage to property.

White and Coleman are both accused of being part of a group of people who were harassing the victims.
