Teen Brothers Charged Following an Incident in Larose

Teen Brothers Charged Following an Incident in Larose

Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced the arrest of two teenage brothers after one stabbed a man and the other broke into a woman’s home. Carlos Flores (18, H/M) and Mark Flores (17, H/M), both of Larose, were fighting with each other prior to the incident.

Shortly after 1:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 1, deputies responded to a disturbance in the 100 black of Twin Acres Drive in Larose. Upon arrival, deputies learned the disturbance began with a fight taking place just outside a woman’s residence which woke her children. The woman opened the door to her residence, told the men to leave her property, and she then went back inside. The men, later identified as the Flores brothers, began yelling at her and allegedly attempted to make entry into the residence. The woman then called 9-1-1 and also made contact with her father who arrived at the residence with another man a short time later. Upon arrival, the woman’s father discovered one of the men, later identified as Carlos Flores, had gained entry into the residence, but he was able to physically remove him. Then Mark Flores, who had acquired a knife, approached the father’s friend and allegedly stabbed him in the shoulder with the knife following a verbal altercation. The wound was not life threatening, and the man refused medical treatment.

Through investigation at the scene, deputies recovered the knife and Carlos Flores’ cell phone near the victim’s residence. They arrived at the Flores’ residence where the brothers were taken into custody without incident, and they were transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux.

Mark Flores was charged with Aggravated Battery with a Dangerous Weapon and Disturbing the Peace. He is being held in lieu of $2,600 bond as set by Judge Steven M. Miller. Carlos Flores was charged with Unauthorized Entry into an Inhabited Dwelling and Disturbing the Peace. He is being held in lieu of $2,600 bond as set by Judge Miller.
