On July 21, 2020, Shreveport Police patrol officers responded to the 8900 block of Jewella Avenue on reports of Domestic Abuse Battery. They arrived and made contact with the victim who disclosed that she was battered by her estranged boyfriend 25-year-old Kentreal Hunt. Hunt was riding in the car with the victim and she accidentally missed the exit she intended to take. Hunt allegedly removed a rifle from a duffel bag, which upset the victim. She demanded that he exit her vehicle.

The victim attempted to call police but Hunt took her cell phone, struck her in the face with a closed fist, and would not allow her to exit the vehicle. He then forced her to drive to a location on Mackey Lane and once the vehicle stopped, Hunt grabbed the victim’s throat, strangled her, and pushed her head against the door. Hunt exited the vehicle, took the victim’s money at gunpoint, and fled the scene. The victim was treated for non-life threatening injuries at a medical facility and released.

 On July 30, 2020 investigators procured warrants for Hunt charging him with one count of Battery Upon a Dating Partner, one count of Interfering with Emergency Communication, one count of Aggravated Kidnapping, one count of Armed Robbery, and one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. No bond was set. On August 11, 2020, he was taken into custody and booked into the Caddo Correctional Center where he remains.

 Shreveport Police have arrested Hunt in the past for Assault/Drive by Shooting and Tattooing Minors.
