Houma man arrested by LPSO for kidnapping his ex

A 29-year-old Houma man was arrested by the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office for allegedly kidnapping his ex-girlfriend.

Around 9:25 p.m. on January 14, deputies were called to an incident at a residence on Sharnell Drive in Bayou Blue. Deputies on the scene learned that a man and a woman were at the residence when the woman's ex-boyfriend, Bryan Bonvillain, 29, showed up outside. 

The man allegedly removed an air conditioning unit from a window and entered the front door of the residence. He then chased the woman and man as they ran out another door of the residence.

As the man ran to a neighboring residence to call 911, Bonvillain allegedly caught the woman, grabbed her, and left the scene. 

Deputies searched the area, but could not find them. 

Investigators continued searching overnight. Then, on the morning of Wednesday, January 15, detectives received information about their possible location on Lacroix Drive in Bayou Blue. Detectives proceeded to the area and located Bonvillain and the woman who was found to be in good health.  Bonvillain was immediately taken into custody.

Bonvillain was booked into the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex in Thibodaux on warrants for Simple Kidnapping and Home Invasion. He is currently being held without bail.
