According to authorities, on November 11, at approximately 11:45 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s deputies patrolling the area of Enterprise Blvd. and Broad Street observed a female running down the street screaming for help. When deputies spoke with the female, she advised them that Larry W. Loya, 54, of 759 Louisiana Avenue, Apt. # 2, in Lake Charles, an acquaintance, forced his way into her home armed with a large kitchen knife. Once inside, Loya pushed the victim to the ground, struck her several times in the face and attempted to stab her several times as she attempted to flee. The  victim escaped her home and flagged down deputies for help.

Authorities also say, deputies located and apprehended Loya at the home of the victim.  Loya has a violent criminal history, including a 1987 conviction of forcible rape in Calcasieu Parish, and a September 2011 arrest for aggravated 2nd degree battery.

Larry W. Loya has been booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with home invasion; attempted second degree murder; aggravated assault; and criminal damage to property over $500.

Judge Michael Canaday set Loya’s bond at $775,000.
