Gun fired at motorist with child in car on Kaliste Saloom

A man driving east on Kaliste Saloom Road with a child in his car Tuesday night was shot at by another driver at the intersection of South Beadle Road, Lafayette police said.

The driver, 40, received minor injuries and his 5-year-old passenger was uninjured in the 6 p.m. shooting, which occurred in the 800 block of Kaliste Saloom Road, Cpl. Paul Mouton said.

The 5-year-old was in the back seat when a driver of a white four-door Pontiac Bonneville pulled alongside the victim at a traffic light and began yelling, Mouton said.

“As the victim proceeded forward, he heard a loud bang and his car door window shattered,” Mouton said.

The man made a quick turn onto South Beadle Road and called police.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lafayette police or Crime Stoppers at (337) 232-TIPS.

Opelousas sex offender accused in rape attempt

opelousas — An Opelousas man recently released from prison was booked this week on one count of attempted aggravated rape in an alleged sexual assault on a 10-year-old girl that occurred last week, police said.

Edward Broussard, 43, of 114 La. 178, is accused of trying to sexually assault the girl in the 1300 block of Ina Clare Drive.

Opelousas Police Chief Perry Gallow said the girl, who was pinned down, screamed and kicked her attacker in the groin and escaped in the short time he grimaced in pain. The girl told her mother, who called Opelousas police.

Gallow said Broussard is a Tier III sex offender, which is the most serious level, and spent 21 years of a 30-year sentence in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.

Broussard was released from Angola on Nov. 7, said Gallow, who was a sergeant in the 1990s and investigated the crime for which Broussard served the prison sentence.
