Police in Scott, Louisiana say Carl Jacquneaux, 43, knew the victim, Todd Credeur, and was upset over a some sort of domestic issue.
Credeur told KATC he 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.
Credeur sprayed wasp spray in Jacquneaux’s face to try and stop the attack.
Police said the assailant then left Credeur’s resident and showed up at another acquaintance’s house in Carencro, where he held him at knife point and stole a hand gun. It was there that deputies finally caught up with Jacquneaux and arrested him.
“Very unusual, it’s not something we see everyday,” said Thomas.
Like the bizarre, zombie-like attack in Florida, Jacquneaux may have been under the influence of some kind of drug. A friend of the victim said she believes he was using bath salts, a drug that can cause a state of excited delirium and dangerous behavior.
“Extremely dangerous, a lot more dangerous than some of the drugs on the street,” explained Thomas.
Police say they may never know if Jacquneaux was under the influence of bath salts because, for some reason, 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.
