The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office has made two arrest in an aggravated burglary that happened Tuesday in Southern Hills.
32-year-old Michael Hare and 24-year-old Whitney Picard were taken into custody just after 10 a.m. Thursday in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant on Hwy 1 at Hwy 538. Hare was arrested on a warrant charging him with aggravated burglary and Picard was arrested on a warrant charging her as a principle to aggravated burglary. Both will be booked into the Caddo Correctional Center.
The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office says the couple had been the target of a search by local law enforcement since Tuesday, when a 21-year-old woman said her door was kicked in and she was beaten by Hare. The woman said she was knocked unconscious and suffered facial injuries from the beating.
Deputies say both Hare and Picard knew the victim and had stayed overnight in her home, but they were put out of the home a few days before the aggravated burglary occurred.
The Caddo Sheriff's Office Detective Division, Patrol Division, and the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force assisted with the arrest.
