GARYVILLE — A 32-year-old man, mad because his father would not give him money, turned on the 57-year-old Garyville resident, repeatedly attacking him with a stun gun and stealing cash from his pockets, police said.

Norman Duhe of LaPlace is facing armed robbery and domestic abuse battery charges following a violent attack that police say took place April 28.

According to authorities, Duhe remains jailed under a $60,169.50 bond.

The victim, identified as Duhe’s father, told St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies the assault took place at approximately 6 p.m. in his Little Hope Street home.

Police described the event as a verbal argument that escalated into a physical altercation.

“Upon arrival, the victim told deputies a male subject identified as Norman Duhe shocked him a few times in the face, neck and stomach with a Taser after he refused to give Duhe money,” a Sheriff’s Office release said.

Duhe removed money from the victim’s pants pocket during the attack and then fled on foot down Little Hope Street toward Louisiana 44, police said.

Deputies canvassed the area but were unable to locate the suspect that evening.

Emergency medical services brought the victim to the hospital, where he was treated and released, according to authorities.

Police said Duhe turned himself in Thursday.
