A 62-year-old Louisiana man was arrested after attempting to run his girlfriend and her three children over with his truck, WATB reports.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to authorities, on Sunday morning, Benjamin Blount became physically aggressive with his girlfriend when she refused to have sex with him in their Baton Rouge apartment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eventually, after a lengthy struggle, the unidentified victim was able to grab her children and vacate the premises. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Reportedly, they took off down the 7800 block of Greenwell Springs Road and stopped at a close by parking lot to wait for a ride.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Moments later, Blount came forcefully driving his 2001 Chevrolet Silverado vehicle in their direction, but the woman and children were able to remove themselves in time. However, that’s when Blount made a U-turn and set out to try to run them over again.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thankfully, they were able to jump behind a dumpster for safety. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Blount then gave up and went on about his way, but he was soon caught and taken into police custody.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He is currently facing charges of second-degree kidnapping, battery, child endangerment, and two counts of attempted first-degree murder.
