UPDATE: Suspect in Rayne stabbing identified; suspect crashes car in Lafayette Parish during police chase
The man accused of stabbing a woman in Rayne is the same man whose vehicle was wrecked in Scott on Jenkins Rd. Shortly after that wreck, Lafayette deputies say that same man who crashed was hit by a train while at Cameron St. and Jenkins Rd.
According to Rayne Police Chief Carroll Stelly, 29-year-old Gregory William Redondo Jr., of Duson, allegedly stabbed a woman three times. Police received a call around 11:04 a.m. about a woman stabbed at the corner of Oak and North Polk Streets. The woman was stabbed in her arm, neck and chest and is in stable condition at a hospital.
That's when Redondo allegedly took off to Lafayette Parish, wrecking the car.
The victim is listed in stable condition with three stab wounds, one to her arm, neck and chest. She was transported to American Legion Hospital and is in stable condition.
Rayne Police were called the intersection of North Polk and Oak Streets shortly after 11 a.m. Friday to aid a young woman who had been stabbed.
A passing couple called city police after discovering the woman who reportedly ran from her assailant on North Polk. The man indicated to police he witnessed the attack as it occurred.
A witness reported the victim identified her boyfriend as her attacker.
The woman’s front was drenched in blood and she held a towel to her neck as she waited in a driveway for an ambulance which took her to American Legion Hospital in Crowley.
The suspect reportedly fled into Lafayette Parish where police found his vehicle and continued their search.
Rayne Police Chief Carroll Stelly was not immediately available to comment on the attack.
