The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office has arrested 18-year-old Darrel Z. Johnson, Azalea Park Dr., after he allegedly attempted to kill the unborn child of his girlfriend by kicking the pregnant woman in the stomach.
According to a report, Johnson got into an argument with his girlfriend on February 20th at their Azalea Park apartment.
