Shreveport police officers arrested Broderick Taylor, 24, for attempted sexual assault at 1:15 a.m. Sunday morning when Taylor allegedly went to a neighbor's apartment, broke in and attempted to force himself on a 13 year-old girl.
Taylor and the girl live in the Northwood Lake Apartments at 4302 N. Market St. When Taylor allegedly entered the apartment and attempted to force himself on the girl, the girl made so much noise that Taylor ran back to his apartment, according to the incident report.
When apartment residents learned what happened, 15 to 20 of them went to Taylor's apartment, some of them armed with bats. A fight ensued, and several people were injured, including a responding Shreveport police officer, who was hit in the head with a bat, officers said.
Most of the people fled the scene when police arrived, and none of the injuries were believed to be serious, including those to the police officer.
