By Bonnie Culverhouse

Local law enforcement arrested a man last Friday for striking his mother.

Torry Capers, 29, of the 300 block of Weston St., Minden, is charged with domestic abuse battery.

“According to witnesses, Torry struck his mother in the face with a closed fist,” said Police Chief Steve Cropper. “Then as his mother tried to leave the residence, Torry grabbed her by the arm attempting to keep her inside the residence.”

He reportedly caused scratches on her body.

Cropper said Capers’ mother eventually got away from him. He was arrested and unable to make bond.

Capers was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
