JACKSON, Miss.- On January 11, 13-year-old Jayveonne Price was arrested and charged with sexual battery and kidnapping according to Jackson Police Commander Tyree Jones.

The scene of the crime was close to the 2300 block of Forest Avenue in Jackson.

The girl suffered from non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital shortly after the incident.
