KSLA reported:

Shreveport police have arrested a man for his alleged role in striking a woman in the face with a metal object last month at a convenience store.

Just before 9:30 p.m. on July 26, officers were called to a convenience store in the 4400 block of Hilry Huckaby III Avenue on reports of an assault and battery.

When officers arrived, they found 18-year-old Jessica Byrnes-Laird who was suffering from injuries to her face.

Police say Byrnes-Laird’s boyfriend got into a fight with several other men at the store. That’s when authorities say 18-year-old Jalen A. Jack threw a metal pipe, striking Byrnes-Laird in the face.

Jack was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count of aggravated second degree battery.

A week after being attacked, Byrnes-Laird is slowly recovering emotionally and physically.
