A Sulphur man is arrested for multiple charges including attempted robbery and simple battery. Calcasieu Parish deputies say on November 15, at approximately 12:30 pm, an off-duty deputy observed 53 year old Kevin Trahan hitting a female driver of a truck parked at the Lake Charles Civic Center.
Deputies say while the victim sat in her truck with the driver's side window down, Trahan forced his way into the truck window, grabbed the victim by the hair and demanded she give him her purse. Trahan then allegedly continued to force his way into the truck's window and began choking the victim while attempting to grab her purse.
Deputies say the victim was able to flee by placing her truck in drive and accelerate through the parking lot, causing Trahan to fall off of her truck where he was quickly detained by the off-duty deputy.
Trahan was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with attempted robbery; simple battery; simple assault; and resisting an officer by refusal to ID.
Bond is set at $20,000.
