Authorities on Friday arrested a Baton Rouge man accused of attacking his longtime girlfriend in front of her children and later challenging sheriff’s deputies to find him.
Carlton Taylor and his girlfriend were arguing at their apartment in the early hours of Dec. 1, according to an arrest warrant, and he punched and slammed her to the ground when she tried to leave.
When the woman dialed 911 for help, Taylor went inside to grab his gun and told her, “I got y’all. I will show you,” the warrant says. He then began destroying things in the apartment and smashed out the windows of his car before running away, the warrant says.
A sheriff’s deputy called Taylor to meet with him, the warrant says, but Taylor refused, saying: “You will have to catch me.”
Taylor, 32, who the warrant says works as a security guard at Dancer’s Gentleman’s Club on Airline Highway, was booked into Parish Prison on Friday morning on counts of domestic abuse battery and assault with a firearm.
Police: Man accused of choking, robbing woman
Baton Rouge police on Thursday arrested a man they say choked a woman until she fell unconscious in early June and stole her purse and iPhone.
Christopher Walker, 19, flagged down the woman as she was walking on the road and asked her to come to his residence in the 3000 block of North Foster Drive, according to an arrest warrant. The woman agreed but became uncomfortable with their conversation and decided to leave, the warrant says.
As she walked toward the door, Walker grabbed her from behind and put her in a chokehold until she lost consciousness, the warrant states. The woman reported seeing Walker digging through her purse when she regained consciousness.
The woman ran into the street, where a motorist saw Walker chasing her, picked her up and called the police, the warrant says.
Walker, 3041 N. Foster Drive, Baton Rouge, was booked into Parish Prison on Thursday on counts of second-degree robbery.
