A Harvey man has been booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center on counts of aggravated attempted rape, sexual battery and aggravated assault in an incident authorities said occurred several years ago.

Kenner police said the victim, who is now 14, reported that Shanga Jones, 36, put his fingers in her “private part” when she was 6 or 7. Jones also is alleged to have threatened to kill her mother by holding a knife to her throat.

Jones was arrested Friday.
