CHURCH POINT, La. (AP) - Acadia Parish officials say a 42-year-old Crowley man is accused of stabbing two sheriff’s deputies who were trying to arrest him.

Sheriff Wayne Melancon (muh-LAN-sahn) says Jason Broussard’s bond was set at more than $1 million for two counts of attempted murder, three of resisting arrest and one of possessing a weapon. The weapons charge and one resisting charge were from an earlier incident.

Melancon tells KLFY-TV (https://bit.ly/1W3atWB) that officers were called to a disturbance Saturday evening at a grocery store near Church Point, and found Broussard nearby.

Melancon says both deputies were stabbed and cut multiple times. He says one was treated and released and the other was released Sunday from a Lafayette hospital.

The sheriff says other deputies arrested Broussard as he tried to flee.
