Man arrested in Tammany Trace attack

MANDEVILLE, LA (WVUE) -

A Slidell man was arrested Wednesday after St. Tammany Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a woman being attacked while walking on the St. Tammany Trace.

Edward Callahan, 26, of Slidell, is expected to be booked with one count of second-degree battery. Additional charges may be forthcoming as the investigation continues.

At about 3:30 p.m., the 19-year-old Mandeville woman was walking on the Trace between the Koop Drive trailhead and Lonesome Road when a man grabbed her around the neck. A bicycle rider saw the incident and scared off the assailant. The rider called 911 and stayed with the woman until deputies arrived.

As one deputy stayed with the woman, others - including K-9 deputies - fanned out to locate the man. A K-9 deputy eventually found the man hiding next to a neighborhood clubhouse pool. He was taken into custody without incident.

The woman was taken to Lakeview Hospital for evaluation. Her condition is not known.
