According to Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, “On December 25, 2020, St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of Castille Road in Sunset in regards to a domestic abuse battery complaint.”

Deputies met with a female, who stated that Rasiem Fredericks was at her home with her 3 juvenile children, ages 6 years, 2 years and 1 year old. While she was away from her home for a short while, she received a text message from Rasiem Fredericks, who stated that the 6 year old juvenile yelled at him and hit him in the head. Rasiem Fredericks stated in a text that he responded by slapping the 6 year old juvenile in the face, but he did not hit him hard enough to make the juvenile pass out. He also sent a picture of the juvenile to the victim’s mother, stating that the juvenile was being too disrespectful and he will not allow it.

A short while later, Rasiem Fredericks texted the victim’s mother again stating that this was a social media prank.

When deputies arrived at the residence and questioned Rasiem Fredericks, he stated that this was a joke and he used makeup on the child’s face because it was a social media prank. He also stated that the mother took the joke too seriously.

The juvenile’s face was showing redness and made complaints of tenderness when the red area was touched. The juvenile stated that makeup was not applied to his face.

Rasiem Fredericks was transported to the St. Landry Parish Jail booked for Domestic Abuse Battery with Child Endangerment.

"Effective this date ( December 29,2020 ) the accused Church Point Police Department Officer Rasiem Alexis Fredericks arrested by the St Landry Sheriffs Department has tendered his resignation and is no longer employed by the Church Point Police Department."


On behalf of Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, this is Deputy Chief Eddie Thibodeaux. All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
