Woman arrested in domestic incident

A Choudrant woman was arrested Monday afternoon after Lincoln Parish sheriff’s deputies responded to a domestic complaint.

The victim told deputies Shawniya Jenkins, 24, had gotten mad over a comment and grabbed her by the throat and threw her up against a wall and held her against the wall with her forearm. The victim said she punched Jenkins to get her off of her.

The victim said she went into the living room and Jenkins got a bottle and threw it at her. When the victim called the sheriff’s department, Jenkins retrieved a knife out of the kitchen and held it to her throat and then threw the knife, hitting the victim in the hand.

Deputies saw a small cut on the victim’s left hand.

Jenkins was located later and arrested for battery of a dating partner and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
