A Thibodaux man wanted for a March 30th attack on a woman at her home surrendered to Lafourche Parish deputies.

Lynes Anthony Ward had been the subject of a "fugitive alert" and was wanted on seven active warrants.

Deputies say Ward, also known as "Peter Rabbit" pushed a woman into her home and tried to strangle and stab her, then drover her to a truck stop.

She was able to alert police, but the man got away.

Investigators say Ward's prior criminal history includes 5 prison stays and a dozen arrests including armed robbery, aggravated assault, home invasion and stalking.
