Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies and Sarepta Police have arrested a north Webster Parish man for fighting with the mother of his child.

Kaleb Paul Beraud, 28, of the 700 block of Kay St., Springhill, has been charged with domestic abuse battery.

Sheriff Jason Parker said Sgt. Aaron Barnes was dispatched to a Shongaloo address Friday night in reference to a domestic dispute.

“Sgt. Barnes talked with the suspect – Beraud – who said he was in a verbal argument with his ‘baby’s momma,’” Parker said. “The victim told deputies Beraud was drinking and came over to her house. She would not let him in and a verbal altercation ensued.”

According to reports, Beraud tried to shove his way into the residence, but the victim blocked his entrance.

“He then allegedly struck her in the right side of her neck,” Parker said. “When the deputy saw her neck, he photographed it and arrested Beraud.”

He was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
