Two men are facing dogfighting charges in Rapides Parish following a Saturday night raid.
Investigators say 34-year-old John Marshall Daniels, Jr., of Beaumont, Texas, and 30-year-old Frank Williams of Alexandria were witnesses to the fight.
Officials were called to an abandoned residence in Alexandria around 11 p. m. Saturday night to investigate suspicious activity and a possible burglary. Deputies say when they arrived, they found four pit bulls on the premises, a fighting ring, flood lights, and a generator.
Deputies say Williams was caught trying to hide at the scene. Williams was caught after he allegedly called in a false carjacking report. Officials say Williams' vehicle was one of 16 found on the property.
The dogs discovered on the property were taken into protective custody.
