In a column, published in the Ruston Daily Leader, Wafer wrote that before the parish was 20 years old, and Ruston less than 10, the charter of the Louisiana Chautauqua, an event for “literary, educational and scientific purposes,” was filed with the Lincoln Parish Clerk of Court.
On Tuesday afternoon, a woman allegedly “jumped on” a man, taking more than $50 in the process.
Ruston Police Department responded to a simple robbery call at the East Side Mini Mart at approximately 5:42 p.m. Tuesday.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with the victim who stated a woman had “jumped on him” and hit him.
According to the report, the victim identified the suspect as Star Ayannah Kimble, 17, of 2001 W. Alabama Ave., No 10. Kimble reportedly grabbed money the victim was holding in his hand and left the scene in her vehicle.
