Arrested for simple assault

The suspect in the March assault of a Louisiana woman in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino parking garage has been arrested.

Alexander Stewart of Gautier has been located and arrested in Scott County, Mississippi. Stewart is being held at the Scott County Jail until he can be transported back to the Biloxi Police Department for processing.

Stewart has been accused of attacking Summer Baham inside her vehicle after she refused his advances in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino parking garage.

News 25 spoke to Baham who says she is relieved to know Stewart will no longer be roaming the streets. “I am extremely relieved and happy. It definitely kind of gives me a good bit of relief knowing that he can’t do that to anyone else. I just want him to learn that you can’t go beating people up for whatever reason it was that night, especially women.”

Today marks a month and three days since the assault.
