Baton Rouge Police have arrested a man in connection with the attempted murder of a woman and her 6-year-old son.

Collins has been previously arrested for burglary, armed robbery and simple robbery, according to the warrant.

Collins was arrested and charged with principal to attempted first degree murder and principal to aggravated criminal damage to property. He is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a $107,500 bond.

The alleged shooter, Antonio Switzer, is still wanted by police. An arrest warrant has been issued.
