A 30-year-old Glenmora man was arrested for multiple charges for allegedly beating a child.

On November 4, 2017, the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office received a complaint of domestic violence that occurred in the Glenmora area, according to Lt. Stephen Phillips, spokesman for the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office. The complainant reported to have received information that Matthew Dexter Wainwright committed a battery upon a juvenile. 

The juvenile was transported to a hospital and later airlifted to another hospital for further treatment. Detectives were able to establish sufficient probable cause that supported the initial complaint, as well as additional crimes, stated Phillips.  Warrants were granted for Wainwright's arrest, by a 9th Judicial District Judge, in reference to one count - domestic abuse aggravated assault, one count - domestic abuse battery, one count - aggravated second degree battery, three counts - second degree kidnapping, two counts - second degree cruelty to juveniles and five counts - obstruction of justice. 

Detectives say Wainwright was located later that day and booked into the Rapides Parish Jail. 
 
He was released on a $137,500 bond.
