The assailant, identified as Trent Anthony Crain, age 32 and a resident of Cullen Tullos Road, was located at his residence the same day and arrested by Sgt. Barber, Deputy Varnado and Deputy James Gregorio. He was booked into the Washington Parish Jail charged with three counts of battery and one count of cruelty to juveniles. On May 28, a Magistrate Judge set his bond at $3,500.
“One of the primary duties of our officers is to protect victims,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “I am so pleased with the actions of our deputies in locating Mr. Crain so quickly and taking him into custody. While we may never know the true motivation behind someone’s actions, I suspect lack of anger control played a role in this situation.”
