BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A man was arrested by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office after allegedly stabbing his ex-girlfriend in the stomach.

According to arrest documents, Donald Pitts, 26, was booked for theft, aggravated battery, second-degree kidnapping and home invasion.

Arrest documents said that on Wednesday, June 28, deputies were called to the 6100 block of East Glen Court and met with the victim, Pitts’ ex-girlfriend and mother of his child. The victim told deputies that she was staying at her mother’s house when Pitts entered the house without consent through an unlocked door.

The victim said that Pitts entered the room she was staying in and began arguing about Pitts wanting to leave the city with their son. When the victim told Pitts no, he stabbed her once in the stomach, arrest documents said.

Pitts put the knife in his pocket and told the victim they were going to a park and threatened to stab her again if she said anything, arrest documents said. The victim said that when they got outside, Pitts allegedly pulled out the knife but she took it from him.

The victim told deputies that Pitts pushed her down but her brother showed up and she ran for help while Pitts left the area. Arrest documents said the victim’s stab wound was non-life-threatening and did not fully pierce the skin.

Deputies interviewed the victim’s brother whose story matched the victim’s.

Arrest documents said that although Pitts had no criminal history with the sheriff’s office, Baton Rouge police had a report accusing him of attempting to stab the same victim and theft.

Pitts was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Sunday, July 9.
