Lake Charles, LA –


On November 7 at approximately 11:30 p.m. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a home in Lake Charles in reference to a disturbance. 


Upon arrival deputies learned the suspect, Teddy T. Arvie, 41, Ville Platte, LA, fled out the back door of the residence when they arrived.  During the investigation deputies learned Arvie, a friend of the victim, arrived at her home and was knocking on her door, when the victim opened the door Arvie pushed his way inside the residence.  Once inside Arvie began yelling at the victim and threatened to hurt her, at which time she was able to text a family member and advise them to call law enforcement.  Deputies also learned Arvie hit the victim several times with his fists, pinned her down, and strangled her while stating he was going to kill her.  The victim stated she attempted to get away but was unable. 


CPSO deputies later located Arvie and when he spoke with detectives he confirmed he strangled the victim and made statements in reference to killing her.  He was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with attempted 2nd degree murder; and home invasion.  Judge Tony Fazzio set his bond at $275,000.


CPSO Detective Chris Duhon is the lead investigator on this case.  


An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged.   A person is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
