CROWLEY — A man arrested in the Tuesday morning shooting of his estranged girlfriend was out on bond pending charges that included two counts of forcible rape involving teenage girls, according to court records.
The girlfriend, who turned 18 on Saturday and is three months pregnant, had a temporary restraining order against Patrick Guillory Jr., 22, at the time of the shooting, Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson said.
The chief said Guillory, 1003 W. Fifth St., Crowley, forced his way into the teen’s home at 1817 JD Miller Drive about 3 a.m. Tuesday. Once inside, he allegedly pistol-whipped her mother, then chased the teen outside, where he fired at least three shots from a .22-caliber handgun, wounding her once in the neck and arm.
The girl, identified in the restraining order as Chyna Joy Young, was in critical condition at an area hospital Tuesday afternoon. Her unborn child appeared to be OK, Gibson said.
Police captured Guillory in the city shortly after noon, Gibson said, and booked him into the Acadia Parish Jail on counts of attempted first-degree murder, home invasion, aggravated battery and violation of a restraining order.
Police also arrested Lawrence Babineaux, 19, of Crowley, and charged him with one count of principal to home invasion.
Young’s mother, Sherry A. Yokum, filed for the restraining order last week on behalf of her daughter. A hearing was set for June 22, court records show.
In the petition, Yokum wrote that Guillory allegedly told Young he has killed before and he’s not scared to kill again.
“He stalks her everywhere she goes. Tells her that he loves her until ‘death do us part,’ ” Yokum wrote. “He tells her he takes medicine and that he can get off on murder charges b/c he is insane.”
Prior to the shooting, Crowley police had responded to the teen’s home on four occasions involving disturbing the peace calls and nuisance phone calls.
Gibson said his office was familiar with Guillory, having arrested him in the past on counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and rape.
“To answer why he’s not convicted or not serving extensive time in jail, I really think that’s a question for the District Attorney’s Office and/or judges,” Gibson said.
Guillory had been scheduled to appear in court May 31 on charges of two counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, two counts of forcible rape and one count each of false imprisonment and cyber stalking, court records show.
In December 2009, Guillory allegedly used a cell phone to threaten bodily harm to a 17-year-old girl. He was charged with cyberstalking for allegedly sending the girl the following message:
“So U R not gonna take me back baby I love u n I fell empty without u bay Ima kill u,” according to court records.
He also allegedly broke a window in the girl’s grandmother’s home and started a fire in the woman’s backyard, court records show.
In March 2010, Guillory was accused of indecent behavior with a 13-year-old girl, who told police he showed up outside her window and threatened to kill her unless she came with him. He then forced the girl to have sex with him, court records show.
In August, the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested Guillory on allegations of forcible rape, carnal knowledge of a juvenile and false imprisonment of a 16-year-old girl. She told detectives she was at home when Guillory knocked on her door and threatened to kill her unless she came with him. Guillory then forced the girl to have sex with him inside a nearby abandoned house, court records show.
Guillory was released on his own recognizance. He was scheduled to go before District Judge Kristian Earles on May 31 on a motion and order to revoke that bond. The hearing was continued.
He was also scheduled to appear before Earles on a motion and order to revoke recognizance bond.
Later that same month, Crowley police arrested Guillory on allegations of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile. The girl told detectives Guillory allegedly hit her and choked her while they had sex.
On June 4, just days before the restraining order against Guillory was filed, Crowley police responded to West Seventh Street regarding a kidnapping call. The juvenile girl’s mother told police Guillory allegedly grabbed the girl and tried to pull her down the road in an effort to get the girl to his home, according to police records.
Gibson said investigators have referred those allegations to the District Attorney’s Office. Additional information on those allegations was not available Tuesday.
District Attorney Mike Harson also did not have any information readily available on Guillory on Tuesday.
