On April 14, 2014, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives received a complaint regarding a 6 year old boy with what appeared to be a human bite mark on his cheek.
During the investigation, detectives discovered Geneva M. Young, 28, 810 Garden Drive, Westlake, a family member of the victim, bit the victim to discipline him and instructed him, if asked, to say his dog bit him.
When questioned by detectives, Young confirmed the allegations.
Young was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with cruelty to a juvenile and released on a $5,000 bond set by Judge Clayton Davis.
The Department of Child and Family Services are investigating this complaint as well.
CPSO Detective Cinnamon Salvador is the lead investigator on this case.
