Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a Sibley man for domestic abuse battery.
Jonathan Daniel Thompson, 41, of the 100 block of N. East 3rd St., was taken into custody Thursday afternoon, after a deputy was dispatched to a discount store in Sibley.
“The deputy made contact with Thompson when he arrived,” Sheriff Jason Parker said. “Due to the seriousness of the situation, he handcuffed and detained him in the patrol unit.”
Parker said the victim was inside the discount store and was visibly upset and crying.
“She told the deputy the incident happened across the street at the subject’s residence,” Parker said. “She ran across the street to the store to get away from Thompson.”
The victim reportedly told the deputy she was arguing with Thompson and he became violent toward her, choking her and pushing her face.
“The deputy also found a bite mark on her right arm, and she said the subject did that to her,” Parker said. “She was cleared by EMS, and Thompson was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center for booking.”
