BAKER — Police arrested a 16-year-old Baker Middle School student Monday after investigating a complaint of sexual misconduct with another student, Police Chief Mike Knaps said.
Knaps said Tuesday the investigation is continuing. Detectives interviewed some witnesses Tuesday and have scheduled a videotaped interview with the reported victim, a 13-year-old girl, later in the week.
The police chief said the nature of the charge on which the student was booked at the Parish Juvenile Center could change after the investigation is complete.
Burglars break through store walls
Burglars dug their way through two vacant offices before breaking into the AT&T Service Center on Perkins Road and stealing an undisclosed amount of merchandise, a Baton Rouge police spokesman said.
Police were notified at 8:30 a.m. when a burglar alarm in the store went off, Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said.
When police arrived at 7731 Perkins Road, they found a hole in the back wall of a nearby business, a hole in the inside wall of an adjoining business and a hole in the inside wall of the AT&T store, McKneely said.
The burglars were gone.
