Houma man arrested for kidnapping ex-girlfriend

Bryan Bonvillain, 29, of Houma was arrested for invading the residence of an ex-girlfriend and kidnapping her overnight, Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced.

At around 9:25 p.m. on January 14, 2020, 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, Bonvillain, showed up outside. Bonvillain reportedly removed an air conditioning unit from a window and then entered the front door of the residence. 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, grabbed her, and left the area.

Deputies searched the nearby area but could not locate them.


Investigators continued searching overnight. Then, on the morning of Wednesday, January 15, 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.
