Woman arrested for domestic abuse

A Ruston woman was arrested for domestic abuse battery Sunday after the alleged victim sought medical treatment.

A Lincoln Parish deputy sheriff responded to the North Louisiana Medical Center Sunday regarding a domestic violence case. The victim stated his wife was drunk and bit him on the eye. He said a woman had come to the residence and he was talking to her, and this made his wife angry. 

The deputy observed a bleeding laceration above the victim’s right eye. 

Deputies went to the Tall Timbers Mobile Home Park to locate the alleged suspect, Maria Lobo, 30, of Ruston. She was found lying in the open doorway of the residence surrounded by beer cans and bottles. Ruston Ambulance Service was contacted to respond. Lobo woke up but had to be helped down the steps due to her unsteadiness.

When questioned about the incident, she said she and her husband got into an argument and “it just happened.” Once she was cleared by EMS personnel, she was arrested and transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
