Deputies arrest local man for assaulting mother

By Bonnie Culverhouse

 A local man is incarcerated after allegedly harming his mother.

Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies have charged Gavin M. Green, 22, of the 200 block of Goodwill Rd., Minden, with domestic abuse battery, domestic abuse aggravated assault, false imprisonment and unauthorized entry.

Sheriff Jason Parker said deputies Josh McCormick and Cole Pickard made contact with the victim at the sheriff’s office Tuesday evening.

“The victim told deputies that her son came into the house while she was asleep and began screaming at her,” Parker said. “She said he punched her in the face and grabbed a knife from the kitchen, threatening to kill her if she left the house.”

Green reportedly took the victim’s phone, so she could not contact emergency authorities.

“The victim was afraid for her life and at some point, her son was armed with a .410 shot gun,” the sheriff said. “All this time, she was confined to her room where she remained all Monday night.”

Once her son fell asleep, the victim reportedly escaped, going to the sheriff’s department to file a complaint. There, deputies took photos of her injuries.

The sheriff said as deputies were going to the house to question Green, he told his grandmother he would “make deputies shoot him if they showed up to talk to him.”

“They then learned Green left the house and was walking down the road toward a truck stop,” Parker said. “They picked him up there, and he told them he and a cousin had shown up at his mother’s house where she pulled a gun on them and he had to wrestle it away from her.”

When he was asked why he said he would make deputies shoot him, Green reportedly told them he did not want to deal with the police.

Green was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. Deputies learned he was currently out on bond for a felony domestic abuse battery charge in Livingston Parish and he has an active traffic warrant through WPSO.
