SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The Shreveport Police Department has arrested a man accused of seriously injuring a woman during a domestic-related attack.

Police say back on June 28, officers were called out to a house in the 9000 block of Pradd Road about a domestic incident. That’s in Shreveport’s Cedar Grove neighborhood.

When officers got to the house, they found the female victim who was reportedly attacked by the man. Police say she suffered broken ribs, a brain bleed, and several contusions and abrasions on her body.
