(TheSmokingGun.com) JUNE 6--From the Zombie Apocalypse news desk comes word of the arrest of a Louisiana man who bit off a chunk of the face of a victim whom he allegedly battered during a bloody attack Saturday.
According to cops, Carl Jacquneaux, 42, attacked Todd Credeur outside the victim’s home in Scott, a city in Lafayette Parish. After punching Credeur in the face, Jacquneaux bit the 48-year-old victim in the face, “removing a large amount of flesh,” police reported.
An arrest warrant affidavit chargesthat Jacquneaux “began biting Mr. Credeur in the face, removing flesh the size of a quarter below the victim’s left eye.” A second affidavit accused Jacquneaux of “biting off half his cheek” and referenced “information” that Jacquneaux “had been up for several days on Meth.”
When officers responded to the fight scene, they found Credeur covered in blood and with “several lacerations to his facial area along with a gaping wound underneath the left eye.” Credeur, who was transported to a local hospital for treatment, is now recuperating at home.
Investigators said that Credeur is the husband of Jacquneaux’s ex-wife, who was present when the attack occurred. The woman has a protective order against Jacquneaux due to “threats and violent behavior,” police note.
Pictured in the above mug shot, Jacquneaux was apparently under the influence of narcotics during the June 2 incident. However, cops would not comment on the claim by a friend of Credeur’s that Jacquneaux had been using bath salts prior to the attack. The hallucinogenic stimulant has been linked to a savage attack last month in Florida that ended with a cannibalistic assailant being shot to death by police.
Jacquneaux, who is being held in the Lafayette Parish jail in lieu of $312,500 bond, is facing an assortment of criminal charges, including aggravated battery, violating a protective order, and burglary. (3 pages)
