A Louisiana man is under fire after attacking his neighbor over a domestic dispute in Lafayette Parish last weekend.
According to police, the attacker, 43-year old Carl Jacquneaux, bit off a chunk of victim, Todd Creduer’s face during an argument the two were having in Creduer’s home. The victim was able to prevent any further damage by spraying wasp spray in Jacquneaux eyes.
Jacquneaux was later subdued by officers at a home in Carencro where the 43 year old was holding another victim hostage with a stolen knife and gun.
“Very unusual, it's not something we see every day," said Assistant Police Chief Kert Thomas.
According to a close friend, Jacqueneaux was using drugs, particularly bath salts, leading police to believe he was under the influence at the time of the attack.
"Extremely dangerous, a lot more dangerous than some of the drugs on the street," said Thomas about the drug.
However, while there is speculation, police may never know if drugs played a role in the attack because a drug test wasn’t administered to Jacquneaux in jail.
Jacquneaux remains in the Lafayette Parish Jail where he faces various charges of battery and burglary, as well as the violation of his probation. Creduer was later released from a local hospital where he expects to recover at home.
