Rumbling Roommates Cause a Commotion, Land In Jail
Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a Bossier City man and two Bossier City women were arrested early Thursday morning following a physical altercation in their apartment.
Terrance C. Gaston, 20; Huyen M. Ngo, 19; and Mandy E. Lindsey, 19; of the 4800 block of Airline Drive in Bossier City, were fighting in their apartment where they live together. Gaston and Ngo are boyfriend/girlfriend, and they began to fight when Ngo struck and scratched Gaston repeatedly, causing numerous scratches to his face, shoulders, back, chest and arms. Ngo admitted to pushing him.
Gaston admitted he pushed and struck Ngo, who is seven months pregnant, causing her to fall over on the couch.
Lindsey told deputies she witnessed the altercation and said she saw Ngo strike Gaston and then became enraged after seeing Gaston strike Ngo. She said she grabbed a large knife from the kitchen and held it against Gaston’s face while telling him to stop fighting Ngo.
Bossier deputies charged Gaston with domestic abuse battery (pregnant) and Ngo with domestic abuse battery. Lindsey is charged with aggravated assault, as well a warrant for failure to appear in court on another charge. They were taken to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking, and the bond for Lindsey is $1,000, while the bond for Gaston and Ngo is pending.
