Battery charge sends one to jail

by Minden Press-Herald



A Minden man found himself in handcuffs after the victim called police claiming he struck her in the head multiple times.

Jobbie Peters, 52, of the 200 block of Virginia Avenue, was arrested Wednesday, Dec. 16, for domestic abuse battery, second offense.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper says officers were dispatched to the 200 block of Virginia Avenue in reference to a disturbance.

“Officer First Class Jesse Cutrer and Officer First Class Jeremy Sitter responded to the call and made contact with the victim,” Cropper said. “She stated Mr. Peters jumped on her and hit her in the head. The victim wished to file criminal charges.”

The chief says the couple got into a verbal altercation when the victim claimed Peters jumped on her, held her to the floor and struck her multiple times in the head.

“She got away from him, left the scene and called police,” he said.

Peters’ first conviction of domestic abuse battery was in March 2014, police records show.
