By Bonnie Culverhouse

A local man has been arrested for allegedly trying to strangle his wife with a young child nearby.

Jesse Ruybal, 35, of the 100 block of Kirby Place, is charged with domestic abuse battery with strangulation and child endangerment.

Minden Police Chief Jared McIver said his officers, Sgt. Anthony Miller, Sgt. Shawn Griffith and Ofc. Logan Clingan responded to a domestic disturbance call at the Kirby Place address around 9:45 p.m. Sunday.

“Sgt. Miller said he responded first and determined Jesse Ruybal had grabbed his wife around the throat and squeezed until she lost her breath and began choking,” McIver said. “The sergeant observed scratch marks on both sides of her neck.”

The couple’s one-year-old daughter was reportedly in another room of the residence at the time.

Ruybal was arrested and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
