Who Got Busted?

Peter JonesAn 18-year-old man from Opelousas is facing attempted second-degree murder charges after investigators say a fight led to a person being stabbed several times.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz says Peter Jones, 18, of Opelousas was booked into the St. Landry Parish jail where he is currently being held on a $150,000 bond.

“The incident happened just after midnight on March 27,” Guidroz says. “Deputies were dispatched to a disturbance on La. Hwy 190 in Opelousas. Arriving deputies discovered a fight had occurred, but they were unable to locate a victim or a suspect at that time. After speaking to several witnesses, it was learned that the victim had been transported to a local hospital with several stab wounds to his back and side.”

Guidroz says the case is open and the stabbing is still under investigation.
