Baton Rouge relatives arrested in August battery, burglary of woman picking up child from daycare | Crime/Police

Two Baton Rouge relatives were arrested Wednesday, and one remains at large, in the August battery and then burglary of a woman picking up a child from day care, according to Baton Rouge Police.

Lealan Banks, 22, and Shanard Banks, 28, are accused in the unprovoked attack, then burglary of the woman at 910 N. Acadian Thruway W, the address of Second Baptist Christian Academy, their arrest reports say.

Chastity Banks, 23, is still wanted in the crime, said Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola, and two other unnamed suspects could also be arrested in the incident.

A group of people, including the three Banks and suspects, approached the woman on the church’s property August 8, their arrest reports say.

Lealand Banks, without being provoked, punched the woman in the face, threw her to the ground and continued to beat her face and torso, his report says. When the victim tried to get up from the initial attack, Chasity Banks started to punch and kick her, according to her arrest warrant, which was filed Sept. 1.

Shanard Banks first yelled at the victim, then videoed the incident with his cell phone, his report says. 

While she was being attacked, the other people entered her vehicle without permission and took several items, their reports say. 

The attack was also caught on video surveillance, their reports say.

The victim sustained several scratches, scrapes and bruises, and had to get about five stitches to close a wound over her left eye, their reports say. 

Lealan Banks, 3754 Main St., was booked into Parish Prison Wednesday night on a count of second-degree battery and principle to burglary of an automobile more than $200.  

Shanard Banks, 2910 Washington Ave., was booked into Parish Prison Wednesday night on a count of principle to second-degree battery and principle to burglary of an automobile more than $200.
