Lake Charles –


The morning of September 13 at approximately 1:45 a.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a home on Wilson Street in Hayes in reference to a stabbing. 


During further investigation deputies discovered the victim had been stabbed by Leroy P. Guidry, Jr., 42, 7708 Wilson Street, Hayes.  Detectives learned the victim arrived at Guidry’s home with an acquaintance of Guidry’s, at which time a physical altercation ensued and Guidry stabbed the victim several times.  Detectives do not believe Guidry and the victim previously knew each other.


Guidry, who was still at his home when deputies arrived, was arrested and booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with attempted second degree murder.  Judge Guy Bradberry set his bond at $250,000.


The victim was transported to a local hospital with life threatening injuries and is currently in the Intensive Care Unit.


CPSO Detective Jerod Abshire is the lead investigator on this case.
