Minden man arrested for domestic disturbance

by Minden Press-Herald

Minden Police Officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Plum Street on May 8 following a 911 call reporting a disturbance between neighbors. Officer O’Connor and Officer Greer responded to the call, which involved residents Keandre Dillard, 44, and Shalonda Harper.

Officers arrived on the scene within two minutes of the call and attempted to make contact with the residents. Despite previous calls and complaints regarding loud arguments and fights at the residence, there was no answer at the door. However, Officer Thompson observed movement inside the residence before the lights were turned off.

Concerned for the safety of the residents, including two children inside, officers called into the house. Keandre Dillard emerged and was detained. He was checked for safety and informed of his rights.

Upon entering the residence, officers found Shalonda Harper in an intoxicated state and two juveniles, ages 16 and 3. The older juvenile reported witnessing physical altercations between Keandre and Shalonda, including an incident where Keandre allegedly grabbed Shalonda by the throat and threw her.

Shalonda initially claimed her injuries were from consensual activities but later refused to provide an accurate account of the events. She displayed extreme emotional distress throughout the interview.

Based on the injuries observed on Shalonda and the statements from the juveniles, Keandre Dillard was arrested for domestic abuse battery with child endangerment and strangulation. He was transported to the Minden Police Department for booking.

Keandre Dillard has a history of arrests for domestic abuse battery, and a prior guilty verdict for the same offense.

Officers ensured the safety of the juveniles and provided support to Shalonda Harper.
