Woman arrested for cutting two women with box cutter
BATON ROUGE- The Baton Rouge Police Department arrested a woman for cutting two women with a box cutter during a fight.
The incident happened on Sept. 11, 2015 in the 4700 block of Bennington Avenue around 2 a.m. when two women were leaving Club Allure when several men and women started fighting in the parking lot.
While one woman was attempting to break up the fight, 20-year-old Paris Willis attacked her and the two began to fight.
Willis produced a box cutter and cut the victim across the left side of her face and back of her head.
As another woman attempted to break up the fight, she was grabbed by security. While in the grasp of the security guards, Willis attacked her and cut her in the face with the box cutter as well.
BRPD contacted Willis for questioning following the incident where she told police that she was attacked by the first woman when the second woman attacked them both with a knife.
Willis said she received a cut to her left arm.
Two days later, BRPD was contacted by one of the victims who sent screen shots of social media posts where Willis was bragging about cutting her.
The screen shots showed Willis’ screen name and a post that stated, “I cut her friend up so bad she gotta have plastic surgery in her face.”
Willis was arrested on second-degree battery charges.
