SCOTT, LA — A fugitive on an alleged drug-binge is accused of committing a series of violent attacks over the weekend that involved several different law enforcement agencies in the Acadiana area. During one of three incidents the man allegedly bit a chunk of flesh from the face of a man he knew.
The first attack happened at around 6:20 a.m. on Saturday, June 2. Officers with the Carencro Police Department were called to a home on Veterans Drive. They learned that a man identified as Carl Jacqueneaux, 42, had forced his way into the home of a family friend and threatened the women who occupy the residence.
Arrest reports say Jacqueneaux threatened the life of an elderly woman and allegedly pushed her several times, once to the ground. The report says the woman is “very frail and elderly, and she was visibly upset and crying.”
Another woman in the home attempted to call Police as Jacqueneaux was threatening the elderly woman. That’s what caused him to leave the home. The report says Jacqueneaux was “hitting and punching on his vehicle before speeding away.”
The second attack occurred shortly before 1:00 p.m. in the town of Scott.
Jacqueneaux allegedly arrived at the home of his ex-wife and confronted her new husband, who was working in the yard at the time. The two exchanged words and Jacqueneaux began biting the victim’s face.
The arrest report says Jacqueneaux removed “flesh the size of a quarter below the victim’s left eye.”
The victim reportedly sprayed a chemical on Jacqueneaux, which ended the attack and allowed him to escape without further damage. Jacqueneaux managed to get away before officers with the Scott Police Department arrived on scene.
At some point between this attack and 2:30 p.m. the arrest report indicates that Jacqueneaux contacted a deputy with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office. The report states that Jacqueneaux wanted to “turn himself in” but also said that he stated he would “kill himself or anyone else who attempted to approach him.”
A short time later, however, officers with the Carencro Police Department were dispatched to an apartment complex in reference to an aggravated burglary in progress.
When officers arrived they learned that the victim, who allegedly knew Jacqueneaux by association, answered a knock at the door and found Jacqueneaux holding a bloody knife in his hand. He allegedly pushed his way through the door, then put that knife to the victim’s throat and began threatening the man.
The victim stated that Jacqueneaux said, “I will kill you if you don’t tell me where your dad’s gun is.”
Jacqueneaux then went into the bedroom of the victim’s father, took the gun, then left with it.
Shortly after the incident Jacqueneaux was found at the dead end of a nearby street. He was then taken into custody without further incident.
Witnesses involved with the case told investigators that Jacqueneaux “had been up for several days on Meth.”
Jacqueneaux has several prior arrests, which were mostly misdemeanor charges, but also include some felony offenses. At the time of this latest arrest, he had two outstanding warrants. Both were related to the status of his probation for the charge Simple Burglary in 2009.
He has been charged with Aggravated Burglary, Simple Battery of the Infirm, Violation of Probation, Aggravated Second-Degree Battery and Violation of Protective Orders. He is currently booked into the Lafayette Parish Jail being held without bond at this time.
