An Amelia man is behind bars after he allegedly beat a woman during a fight.
The incident took place Thursday morning at a home in the 100 block of Lake Palourde Road.
St. Mary Parish sheriff's deputies say 21-year-old Andrew Hebert and the victim had been in an argument when he began throwing household items at the victim, striking the victim in the nose. Deputies add that Hebert threw a TV into the floor and broke a car door and window before leaving.
The victim suffered a bloody nose. The children in the home were not injured.
Hebert was arrested later in the day by Berwick police. He is charged with aggravated assault and is being held in the St. Mary Parish Jail without bond.
