A search is underway for 21-year old Taylor Broussard, who is now facing nine active warrants for several felonies.
Broussard had the authorities called on him when he entered a woman’s home, who wishes to be unidentified, without her permission. He forced his way inside and confronted her not once, but twice. The second time she was alone with her child.
He started to punch the woman and continued to do so while she tried to sheild her child.
He pulled out a knife and slashed the woman’s mattress and damaged several items in their bedroom before the woman and her child escaped. They called for help at a neighbors house.
Now, after surviving that gruesome attack, deputies have discovered that Broussard had snuck into the attic of the woman and had been living up there for a while.
They are not certain about how long he was up there. They found evidence of bedding, water bottles, food as well as plastic bottles filled with urine.
Broussard stole the woman’s purse before escaping in her dark gray 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander with a license plate reading XLG572, according to the LPSO. When deputies arrived on the scene and searched the house, they found bedding, water bottles, food and plastic bottles filled with urine in the attic. Deputies believe Broussard had been living in the attic for some time, but exactly how long he was up there remains a mystery. Broussard faces arrest warrants for two counts of stalking, domestic abuse battery with child endangerment, domestic abuse aggravated assault, theft of a motor vehicle, felony theft, home invasion, unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, and simple criminal damage to property. Broussard is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds. His last known address is listed as a residence on South Kibbe Street in Erath. Deputies learned he lived in Lafayette for a period of time before coming to the Larose area. It is unknown whether Broussard remains in Lafourche Parish at this time.
