THIBODAUX, LA (WVUE) - Thibodaux Police have arrested 23-year-old Ruiyang Zou for again knocking on a neighbor's door and then standing motionless - even after he was asked what he wanted. Zou eventually just walked away. Police said he has done this a few times.
"Though Ruiyang Zou's actions have not yet been violent, his reoccurring knock at the door and then standing there motionless is extremely disturbing," said Chief Bryan Zeringue. "All law-abiding citizens have a right to feel safe and secure in their own home. Hopefully, Ruiyang Zou will get the help he needs before he hurts someone or is hurt by someone feeling the need to protect themselves. "
Zou was arrested on Aug. 29 for doing the same thing at the victim's home in the 100 block of Union Drive. At that time, he was banned from the property and the resident wanted to press charges.
When police went to Zou's home to arrest him, they said they found him in the front yard. His father was trying to drag him inside, but instead, they say Zou just knelt to the ground.
Officers said he refused to communicate with them and had to be carried in and out of the patrol car during his arrest.
Ruiyang Zou is being held at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center on a hold without bond. He has been booked with the entry on/or remaining in places after being forbidden.
