Crowley Police have booked a Rayne man in connection with this past weekend's stabbing.

Mervin Dugas was booked with home invasion and two counts of attempted murder. He remains in the Acadia Parish jail with bond set at $95,000. 

Dugas is accused in connection with a stabbing that happened early Saturday near N. Avenue B and West Fifth Street in Crowley. Two victims were stabbed and were OK. Dugas was admitted to the hospital with injuries sustained during the incident, Crowley Police said. He was released yesterday, and booked into jail. 

Crowley Police announce that the suspect from a stabbing incident in the early morning hours of Saturday, February 24, is now in custody in the Acadia Parish Jail.

Police also released additional details today.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours of Saturday in the 900 block of West Fifth Street, a spokesman said. According to reports, Dugas forced his way into a residence and began to punch a female victim and stab her with a pair of scissors. A male subject in the residence attempted to confront Dugas to cease the altercation, at which time the male subject was stabbed by Dugas, the spokesman said. 

Officers responded and encountered Dugas still in the residence and still with the weapon in his hand. After a brief struggle with the suspect, officers were able to subdue the suspect, at which time stab wounds were discovered on the suspect rendered by the male victim of the residence. Dugas was then transported to the hospital and transferred at that time to a local regional facility, the spokesman said.
