On Monday, three Washington Parish Jail inmates were arrested for physical assault on a fourth jail inmate, according to Chief Criminal Deputy Mike Haley of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Haley said that inmate Elisha Brown initiated the assault and was joined by inmates Travon D. Washington and Aaron Little in the unprovoked assault on the inmate victim.
Elisha Brown, 20, has been in the Washington Parish Jail since Aug. 28, 2021, after having been arrested by WPSO detectives. A resident of Wood Scale Road in Hammond, Brown is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Xykie Barker. Brown also has additional charges of aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, battery and three counts of theft of a firearm. His bond has been set at $350,000.
Travon D. Washington, 21, also has been in the Washington Parish Jail since Aug. 28, 2021, after having been arrested by the WPSO. A resident of Driftwood Street in Amite, Washington is charged in the same murder of Xykie Barker. He also faces charges of aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, two counts of battery and three counts of theft of a firearm. His bond has been set at $560,000.
Aaron Little Jr., 18, has been in the Washington Parish Jail since July 1, 2022, after having been arrested by the Bogalusa Police Department. He is charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery, armed robbery with a firearm, illegal use of a weapon and battery. No bond has been set for Little.
“Being inmates does not prevent additional arrests,” Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal said. “If you do a crime, you will be arrested and prosecuted. These three young men are already facing serious charges and now they are accumulating additional charges. Violent behavior is not tolerated in our community; nor is it tolerated in our jail.”
