Update: 36-year-old Dorian Kennedy was apprehended Monday evening in Baton Rouge by the Louisiana State Police Fugitive Apprehension Unit.


36-year-old Dorian Kennedy is on the loose as deputies with the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office are set to charge him with domestic abuse battery by strangulation and simple assault.

On Tuesday, deputies went to a home in Siracusaville to serve an arrest warrant on him. While there, deputies say they discovered Kennedy had allegedly made threatening statements toward the female victim and law enforcement officers. After searching Kennedy's last known address, 1412 James Street, he was not found.

Deputies say they spotted Kennedy Wednesday morning near the intersection of Youngs Road and Myrtle Road in Morgan City, but he was able to get away.

Detectives believe Kennedy may still be in the Morgan City or Siracusaville areas.
