TheLafourche Parish Sheriff's Office arrested a 29-year-old Houman man in connection with invading the residence of an ex-girlfriend and allgegedly kidnapping her overnight.

At around 9:25 p.m. Tuesday deputies responded to an incident at a residence on Sharnell Drive in Bayou Blue.  Deputies learned a woman and man were at the residence when the woman’s ex-boyfriend, Bryan Bonvillain, showed up outside.  Bonvillain reportedly removed an air conditioning unit from a window and then entered the front door of the residence.  Cops say he then chased the woman and man as they ran out another door of the residence.  As the man ran to a neighboring residence to call 911, Bonvillain caught up to the woman, allegedly grabbed her, and left the area.  Deputies searched the nearby area but could not locate them.

Investigators continued searching overnight. Then, on Wednesday morning detectives received information about their possible location on Lacroix Drive in Bayou Blue. Detectives proceeded to the area and located Bonvillain and the woman who was found to be in good health.  Bonvillain was immediately taken into custody.

Bonvillain was booked into the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex in Thibodaux on warrants for Simple Kidnapping and Home Invasion. He is currently being held without bail.
