Second arrest made in family beating at elementary school
BATON ROUGE - A second arrest has been made after two siblings allegedly assaulted a woman at a local elementary school Wednesday.
According to arrest records, the incident took place on Wednesday, August 16, around 11:30 a.m. at Park Elementary School located on Fuqua Street.
Authorities said the suspect, Christopher Parker, 24 of Baton Rouge, was upset because the victim, who is his child's mother, was attempting to register their child into the school. The child was reportedly withdrawn from Ryan Elementary School earlier in the week and was being registered into Park Elementary without his permission, according to arrest records.
As the victim was inside of the school's main office filling out registration paperwork with the assistant principal, Parker allegedly walked in to the office and began to yell and curse at the victim. Parker then grabbed the child, who was in the office with the victim, and walked into the hallway, according to arrest records.
The victim followed Parker into the hallway and stated to not take her son, according to arrest records. Parker then allegedly slapped the victim in her face several times, according to arrest records. Parker then pushed the victim against the wall, causing her to strike her back on a fire extinguisher that was mounted to the wall.
After attacking the victim, Parker allegedly told his sister, Trenicia Parker, to beat the victim up as he cursed at her again, according to arrest records.
Trenicia Parker then attacked the victim while her brother left the school with his child, according to arrest records.
The victim sustained injuries to her shoulders and upper back as a result of the attack, according to arrest records.
The assistant principal of the school told authorities that he observed Parker yell and curse at the victim in the school's office. The assistant principal also said she saw Parker slap the victim and push her against the wall. She added that Parker did not have the authorization to be on the school's campus at the time of the incident, according to arrest records.
Authorities searched for Parker in the area of the school on the day of the attack but could not locate him. Police later located Parker Friday on N. Harco Drive.
After being advised of his rights, Parked was questioned about the incident at the elementary school, to which he stated, "I didn't hit her and I didn't do anything to her at that school," according to arrest records.
Parker was later found to have an outstanding arrest warrant through the Baton Rouge Police Department for failure to return leased movables, according to arrest records.
Parker was arrested, charged and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of domestic abuse battery, one count of unlawful disruption of the operation of a school and one count of fugitive from justice.
