Leesville, LA (KPLC) - A Leesville man has been arrested after being accused of abusing a 2-year-old child, according to the Leesville Police Department.

After investigating, officers received a warrant for Donald Ray Garrett, 28, for cruelty to a juvenile.

Garrett was arrested and booked into the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office jail on Jan. 16.
