A 31-year-old Zachary man accused of violently assaulting his 88-year-old grandmother, breaking her eye socket and nose, has been arrested by police.
Keon Hendrell Brown, who had told family members his grandmother was injured in a fall, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison Monday on counts of cruelty to the infirmed and second-degree battery involving domestic violence.
Zachary Police Department Sgt. Johnny Dillon said the nature of the victim's injuries - a broken nose and eye socket, but no other cuts or bruising - were not consistent with a fall and had aroused suspicion by other family members.
It was unclear whether Brown has an attorney.
