Man who fought off attackers arrested on sex charge
Joseph Reed, 42, who currently resides in Boutte but gave police an address in Beaumont, Texas, drove into Jefferson Parish on Oct. 14 and picked up a young girl that he knew only as “Chocolate.” He brought Chocolate back to his home, where authorities say he had inappropriate sexual contact with her.
When they were finished, Reed says he brought Chocolate to a gas station on Williams Boulevard in Kenner and dropped her off with two of her friends.
After returning home and going to sleep, Reed says he awoke to find four men inside his home pointing a shotgun at him and demanding money. Reed was able to subdue one of the men, and gave authorities a vehicle description that led to four more arrests.
Along with Reed, the 16-year-old girl was arrested and booked with armed robbery, principal to attempted first degree murder and prostitution by massage.
Others arrested because of the incident include:
•Steven Fallon, 22, of Montegut, who was booked with armed robbery, principal to attempted first degree murder, felony carrying of an illegal weapon, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and a St. Charles Sheriff’s Office attachment;
•Angela Whet, 26, of Independence, who was booked with armed robbery and principal to attempted first degree murder;
•Gabriel Kleinpeter, 22, of Independence, who was booked with armed robbery and principal to attempted first degree murder;
•Dustin Haney, 20, of Monroe, who was booked with armed robbery, principal to attempted first degree murder, aggravated flight from an officer and felony carrying of an illegal weapon;
•Pedro Witham, 22, of Metairie, who was booked with armed robbery and principal to first degree murder.
