Additional arrest in I-12 carjacking, stabbing
Deputies say they have arrested a suspect in connection with a carjacking/stabbing that happened around 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 16 on I-12 westbound between Satsuma and Walker.
Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard announced the suspect, Alex Bradley, 29, of Fenton, was arrested by the Fenton Police Department Thursday afternoon.
Ard said deputies found the victim’s stolen truck off of Juban Road on Thursday.
Once Bradley is transported back to Livingston Parish, he will be booked into the parish detention center on charges of carjacking, attempted first-degree murder, and theft of a motor vehicle.
On Friday, March 18 LPSO announced an additional arrest in the carjacking and stabbing case.
According to deputies, they arrested 56-year-old Rebecca Hebert of Denham Springs.
Hebert is currently in the Livingston Parish Detention Center for the following:
-Accessory after the fact: Attempted first-degree murder
-Accessory after the fact: Carjacking
-Obstruction of justice
According to deputies, the victim, who is a veteran, was found on the side of the I-12 westbound between Satsuma and Walker suffering from stab wounds on Wednesday evening.
“We’re learning more about what led up to the carjacking/stabbing incident yesterday. We have learned the victim was parked on the side of the interstate. The victim was approached by the suspect who was on foot. The suspect requested a ride. The victim agreed. Not long after, the suspect attacked. Why? The motive is still unclear,” Sheriff Ard explained.
Ard said an LPSO correctional supervisor was traveling on that stretch of the interstate and saw a man in distress and stopped to render aid until medical personnel could arrive.
He went on to say, “she was one of countless motorists who passed that scene yesterday. But, was one of only a handful who stopped. She didn’t have to. But, she did. She provided care & comfort during a traumatic time for the victim.”
“Lesson learned here is you don’t know who these people are who are walking on the side of the road. They are total strangers, you don’t know their background or what they are capable of. I would avoid stopping there unless it’s an emergency. If you feel like someone needs assistance, call us or your local law enforcement. We’ll be more than happy to check on them and see if they need any type of help,” Ard said.
