Son accused of attacking father with a sword

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) -  At 3 p.m. Wednesday Lafayette Parish sheriff's deputies received a call from the 100 block of St Esprit Road just outside of Carencro, the caller reported a domestic dispute in progress.

Deputies arrived to find a 63-year-old male with several chop like injuries to the hands, arms and head. The man indicated that his 32-year-old son had struck him several times with a samurai sword.

Deputies are watching over Albert Brice Prejean from Carencro at a local hospital, once doctors determine he is medically cleared for incarceration deputies will book him with one count of attempted second-degree murder.

Deputies learned that the father who does not reside at that address was attempting to counsel his son concerning domestic issues when the discussion escalated into a dispute. The son exited the room and returned with the sword striking his father at least four times. The cuts on the arm and hand appear to be defensive type wounds.

Prejean was reportedly attempting to strike his father in the head.

As the father defended himself the two men fell, and the son received a cut to his leg as well, he was transported to University Medical Center in Lafayette where he remains under guard until such time as he can be transferred to the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.

The father was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
