CRIMESTOPPERS: Man accused of assaulting woman in front of child

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Police are hoping the public can help them find a man who allegedly attacked a woman.

Greater Baton Rouge Crime Stoppers reported Kenneth James, 35, is wanted by the Baton Rouge Police Department.

James is 6-foot-3 and weighs 187 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Investigators said James and the victim got into an argument on May 20, 2018 and at some point, he allegedly pushed the woman in her head and chest several times.

They added children were present at the time and James has been arrested in the past for domestic violence.

James faces charges of domestic abuse with child endangerment and Gwen’s Law is applicable.

Gwen’s Law:

The law permits courts to order a defendant jailed without bail when the individual is charged with a felony against a dating partner or family or household member. Evidence presented during a contradictory bail hearing could compel a judge to decide a defendant's freedom poses a danger to alleged victims. Gwen was murdered by her husband while he was out on bail.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to send an email anonymously from the Greater Baton Rouge Crime Stoppers website or visit its Facebook page.

You can also call Crime Stoppers at 225-344-7867 or text CS225 and a message to 274637.
