Thibodaux juvenile arrested after pointing toy gun at resident

Updated:

Thibodaux, La. - A juvenile was arrested early Saturday morning after he allegedly pointed what looked like an assault rifle at a resident.

On Saturday just before 1:30 a.m., a juvenile dressed in camouflage stood in the victim's driveway and pointed an assault rifle at him while he was parking his car  in the 1800 Block of Badt Avenue.

The suspect was found by police a couple of blocks away.

Police learned that the gun was actually an air soft gun with the orange cap removed.

Thibodaux Chief of Police Scott Silverii said the suspect, whose name is not being released because of his age, faces charges of aggravated assault, probation violation, curfew violation, and Thibodaux City Ordinance Uncontrollable Violation.
