Man charged in using stun gun on 7-year-old

 Kenner - On Friday, September 22, 2017, the Kenner Police Department arrested Kevin Alexis, 19, of 2715 Acorn Street, in Kenner, and charged him with the crimes of second degree battery and cruelty to a juvenile. 

 On Friday, September 22, 2017, at 10 p.m., the mother of a 7-year-old male, observed blisters / burn marks on her son’s back.  When questioned, the child disclosed that he was playing on Acorn Street when Alexis exited a residence and began chasing neighborhood children while in possession of a stun gun.  As the child attempted to flee, Alexis had arched the stun gun and placed the electrical current which flows between the metal prongs to the child’s back.  As the result of the incident the child received minor burns and discoloration to his back. 

 Alexis was located by Officer Chad Stroyewski at his residence located at 2715 Acorn Street, in Kenner where he was taken into custody and the stun gun recovered.  Officer Stroyewski interviewed Alexis who claims he obtained the stun gun from the kitchen window inside his residence and was “playing around” with neighborhood children.  Although he denied touching any child with the stun gun, he admitted that he would turn the stun gun on to scare the children in the neighborhood. 

 At the time of this press release, Kevin Alexis remains in custody, his bond was set at $50,000.00

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information concerning this incident or Kevin Alexis call Kenner Police Officer Chad Stroyewski at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
