A Lafayette man suspected in a Christmas week beating downtown surrendered to police Monday, authorities said.

Joshua W. Richard, 27, is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail in the Dec. 26 attack of André Broussard, a 30-year-old graphic designer and DJ from Lafayette.

The Lafayette Police Department issued a warrant Dec. 30 for Richard’s arrest after privately held surveillance footage implicated him in the crime.

Broussard told police he bumped into a man on Jefferson Street around 1:45 a.m. before he was followed for several blocks and punched twice in the face near Buchanan and Vermilion Streets, police said.

The investigation remains ongoing.

Kaplan man accused in Abbeville carjacking

Authorities said a Kaplan man booked Sunday is accused of carjacking a woman that evening at an Abbeville convenience store.

Devin Johnson, 27, was arrested late Sunday in a trailer park off Arthur Bourgeois Road in Kaplan after a multi-agency manhunt, according to a news release from the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office. Authorities had already located the victim’s vehicle at a home near East Amy Street and South Herpin Avenue in Kaplan, the Sheriff’s Office said. The car was returned to the victim.

She told police she gave a beggar $10 before he flashed his holstered gun and threatened to shoot if she didn’t step away from her car, the Sheriff’s Office said. It happened around 5:15 p.m. on the east side of Abbeville.

Johnson was being held late Monday at the Vermilion Parish jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Breaux Bridge man booked in fatality

A Breaux Bridge man booked Friday on a count of vehicular homicide is accused of driving impaired when he caused the crash that killed 56-year-old Betty Borel, State Police said.

Emmanuel Wiltz, 30, was rebooked on one count each of vehicular homicide and driving left of center after Borel died Dec. 30 from injuries she suffered in the afternoon accident, State Police spokesman Brooks David said. Police had issued a warrant Friday upgrading Wiltz’s counts, David said.

Wiltz was first booked Dec. 30 on counts of OWI, vehicular negligent injuring, driving with a suspended license and resisting an officer.

Toxicology reports are still pending for both Borel and Wiltz, but police suspect Wiltz was impaired at the time of the accident, David said.

Wiltz was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado south on La. 328 near Dermelie Calais Road around 3 p.m. when he crossed the center line, crashing head-on into Borel’s 2003 Chevrolet Malibu, David said. Both Wiltz and Borel were wearing seat belts, David said. Wiltz suffered minor injuries, but Borel’s at the time were considered moderate, David said.
