Lake Charles Man Reacts Strangely To Sexual Abuse Charges
Marlin Demouchet, 37, of Lake Charles, has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two juveniles, but not before he displayed some erratic behavior.
Our news partners at KATC reported Demouchet was being questioned by Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office detectives when he began beating himself in the head with a chair inside the interview room. Even after he was taken to the hospital for stitches, he continued to resist deputies and even attempted a getaway that ended with a brief foot race.
He is being accused of having inappropriate sexual contact in 2010 to 2011 with an acquaintance's two daughters when they were between the ages of eight and 10 years old.
Demouchet was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Jail for aggravated rape and two counts of sexual battery. His bond is set at $900,000.
Calcasieu Parish investigators told KATC reporters that Demouchet is also being investigated by another local law enforcement agency for more allegations of juvenile sexual abuse.
