BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Officials with the Baton Rouge Police Department say they have arrested a man after an alleged battery outside a business on Gwenadele Avenue, just off Airline Highway on Sunday, Jan. 10.

The victim tells WAFB’s Lester Duhé, it happened around 1:30 p.m. Sunday right outside of Hustler Hollywood.

“The man snuck up on me and my pregnant girlfriend and punched me in the back of the head. I backed off into the lobby of the business and he turned around and walked off. I filed a police report, and police couldn’t find the man,” the victim explains.

A spokesperson for BRPD tells WAFB officers have arrested Christopher Lee Wesley on the charge of simple battery in connection with the incident outside of Hustler Hollywood.

Officials say they arrested Wesley while investigating a separate incident for theft of a firearm.
