LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles man is facing charges of attempted car-jacking and stalking in separate cases being investigated by the Lake Charles Police Department and the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Lake Charles Deputy Chief of Police Mark Kraus said that 43-year-old Michael Aurelian Lognion was arrested Friday in the 1900 block of Bank Street without incident.

Lake Charles police charged Lognion with attempted car-jacking.

Bond on the charge was set at $100,000.

"The incident stemmed from a complaint received where the suspect allegedly attempted to enter a vehicle that was occupied on Sept. 11. In that case, police learned that Lognion approached the vehicle and tried to enter it while the driver was stopped at the intersection of Kirkman and 12th Street. The driver fled," Kraus said.

Lognion is also facing a charge of stalking, resulting from an investigation by the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

According to CPSO commander Mike Byrne, a complaint was filed by a female employee of a local financial institution.

" The complainant indicated in the report that over a period of several months, Lognion repeatedly entered the institution looking for her, loitered around outside of the building, peering through the windows, despite being asked to stop," Byrne said.

Lognion's bond on parish charge was set at $100,000.
