MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) -

A Moss Bluff man has been charged with domestic abuse and battery charges following a domestic disturbance on Tuesday.

Deputies with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office responded to the incident at about 10 p.m.

Upon arrival, deputies were advised that 20-year-old Austin Dailey had engaged in a verbal altercation with a pregnant female victim. Authorities say Dailey punched, pushed and choked the woman, putting his hands around her throat and holding a knife against her forearm.

Investigators say an 80-year-old acquaintance attempted to help the victim but was struck by Dailey. Dailey then fled the scene but returned a short time later and was arrested without incident.

Dailey was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center on charges of aggravated battery, possession of CDS IV (Alprazolam), exploitation of the infirmed and domestic abuse battery against a pregnant victim.

Following that arrest, detectives continued their investigation and learned the day before, Dailey had pushed and grabbed the same 80-year-old family member by his shirt collar.  Detectives also discovered Dailey used his penis to slap the elderly victim in the face. 

Dailey was charged with two counts of sexual battery and battery of the infirmed.

His bond had been set at $1.2 million.

According to the CPSO, Dailey had been previously charged with cruelty to the infirmed in May 2013, and in September 2012, he had been charged with domestic abuse battery.
