Man Arrested After Allegedly Hitting Brother With Machete
Late Sunday evening, Iberia Parish Deputies were called out the 8100 block of Highway 90 West after a man called to report that he had been hit in the head with a machete.
Deputies say they talked to the 40-year-old victim who says his brother hit him with the machete, and deputies saw a large laceration on the victim's head.
The man was taken to a hospital for help.
Deputies say they found the suspect, 43-year-old Sittiphone Bounyasaeng, at his home in Iberia Parish. They say he initially resisted arrest by deputies, but was later taken into custody after deputies used a K9 deputy for help.
Bounyasaeng was booked on charges of attempted second degree murder and resisting arrest.
