 Elderly couple severely beaten inside their residence on Teton St. in Kenner

 Kenner - Two victims were severely beaten Sunday (July 10, 2017), inside their residence on Teton Street, in Kenner, which is located in the Woodlake Subdivision.  Kenner Police was first notified of the incident at approximately 3:31 p.m., Sunday, when a neighbor dialed 9-1-1 to report that his next-door neighbor walked over to his residence covered in blood and asking for help for she and her husband. 

 Officers arrived at the residence and discovered that an 89-year-old male, and a 70-year-old female, had been severely beaten.   Detectives believed that the couple had been severely beaten with a hammer, which was found inside the victimsí residence covered in blood and hair.   Speaking to the female victim, she provided the name of a 16-year-old juvenile who had been inside the residence with the couple when the attack occurred.  In addition, the elderly couplesí vehicle had been stolen.     

 While processing the residence for evidence, the Baton Rouge Police Department called to advise that the victimís vehicle had been involved in a crash in Baton Rouge, and the 16-year-old named suspect was detained.  The 16-year-old, who is acquainted with the elderly victims was interviewed by Kenner Police Detective Nick Engler and confessed to striking the elderly couple with a hammer and then stealing their vehicle. 

 The 16-year-old, whose name is being withheld because he is a juvenile was charged with the crimes of attempted first degree murder (2-counts), theft of a motor vehicle, and aggravated burglary.  The juvenile was transported to the Rivarde Detention Center to await a continued custody and bond hearing. 

 Both victims remain hospitalized in critical condition.   

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information concerning this incident to call Kenner Police Detective Nick Engler at (504) 712-2410 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
