A new violent attack in Scott, Louisiana is eerily similar to a case out of Florida connected to bath salts.
Last week, an attack in Florida ended when police shot and killed Rudy Eugene after he would not stop biting and chewing at another man’s face.
According to KATC News, a similar horrific event has emerged over the weekend in Lafayette Parish.
Police said Carl Jacquneaux, 43, knew the victim, Todd Credeur, and was upset over a domestic issue.
Credeur was working in his front yard when Jacquneaux showed up at his house and attacked him. Credeur said he was shocked when Jacquneaux bit him on the face.
That’s when Credeur said he sprayed wasp spray in Jacquneaux’s face to try and stop the attack. Police said he then left Credeur’s house and showed up at another acquaintance’s house in Carencro where he held him at knifepoint and stole a hand gun. It was there that deputies caught up with Jacquneaux and arrested him.
“Very unusual, it’s not something we see everyday,” said Thomas.
A friend of the victim said she believes he was using bath salts, a drug police said can cause a state of excited delirium and dangerous behavior.
But police said they might never know if Jacquneaux was under the influence of bath salts, because no blood tests were performed before he was booked into jail.
Jacquneaux is charged with aggravated burglary, simple battery of the infirm, violation of probation, aggravated second degree battery and violation of protective orders. He is being held in the Lafayette Parish Jail with a $312,500 bond.
Credeur was released from the hospital and is recovering at home.
