APSO searching for Baker woman for kidnapping, battery
BAKER – Deputies are looking for a Baker woman who investigators said hit an employee multiple times with a handgun and left in a ditch Saturday.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office said 36-year-old Tondalynn Abraham is wanted for aggravated battery and aggravated kidnapping.
Investigators said Abraham was traveling with an employee of her pressure washing business when she got upset about an incident that happened Friday.
Deputies said Abraham forced the employee to sit in the bed of her pickup truck against his will. When the man tried to escape, investigators said she forced him back into the truck and hit him on the head with a handgun several times.
APSO said deputies found the victim in a ditch with multiple injuries to his head Saturday.
According to investigators, when deputies tried to help the victim, they saw Abraham flee from the scene, leading authorities on a short pursuit.
APSO deputies said they found her vehicle abandoned on Brown Road in Prairieville later.
The victim was transported to a local hospital and was treated for his injuries.
APSO said the case is still under investigation and more charges could be added later.
