Police: Suspect charged with trying to kill unborn child

THIBODAUX, LA (WAFB) - About a month after 24-year-old Leveron Scott was arrested for domestic abuse battery, he was accused of punching and kicking his pregnant girlfriend, according to officials with the Thibodaux Police.

Police also say Scott told the woman he did not want the baby anymore.

Just before 10 p.m. on May 12, 2015, Scott and his girlfriend got into an argument that led to Scott punching her in the head multiple times. The woman went to lie down because of her pain. Scott then allegedly picked up the argument and began to punch and kick her again. He left the apartment after the fight and the victim called police.

Police found Scott on the other side of the apartment complex. He admitted to police he and his girlfriend were in an argument, and told police he held her down with his foot, pulling her hair, and said that his foot might have slipped and hit her in the belly.

Scott was arrested and charged with attempted first degree feticide and domestic abuse battery of a pregnant victim.

He is being held without bond at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center.

The mother and the unborn child are in stable condition.
