BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A Baton Rouge man is being held on a $2,500 bond for physically abusing a woman in front of her young child. The victim told officers that her attacker has a history of physical violence.
The Baton Rouge Police Department was called to investigate on Wednesday, Sept. 25 shortly before 10:30 p.m. The victim told the officer that Aaron M. Daughty, 28, punched and choked her in front of her 4-year-old child.
“The victim’s mouth was swollen and bloody and the skin was broken where she was struck,” the arrest report noted. “The victim advised that this occurred before in Baker, La. and she and [Daughty] were still in court for the previous matter.”
Daughty had left the scene before police arrived. He was located the next day and arrested for Domestic Abuse Battery with Child Under Age 13 Present. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
