Alphonse Chauvin

A Metairie man was arrested Saturday after he was accused of harassing and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend, an LSU employee, according to an LSU police department arrest report.

Alphonse Chauvin Jr., 49, found the woman's work phone number online and called her more than 100 times between July 21 and July 24, according to the report. The woman told police Chauvin became more aggressive with each call, eventually telling her he knew where she lived and would kill her and her children.

Police said Chauvin also repeatedly called the woman's underage daughter to ask for the woman's number and threatening her. Finally, Chauvin also called the woman's co-workers and tried to get her fired.

Chauvin and the woman had dated for two years, the police report says, but broke up in December 2016.

The woman told police she doesn't feel safe at work or home anymore because of the harassment and because Chauvin attacked and choked her in February 2015.

Chauvin, of 1212 Focis St., Metairie, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on stalking, stalking persons under 18 years old and terrorizing.
