A Lake Charles man has been arrested after allegedly demanding money from an acquaintance and stabbing the man’s dog in the head and neck.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Kayla Vincent said deputies were dispatched to a home on North Perkins Ferry Road in Moss Bluff on Monday in reference to a disturbance.

When deputies arrived they learned Robert C. Willis, 33, 1182 Waynewood Drive, went to the victim’s residence and demanded money and other items from him. 

Willis then left the residence and threatened to come back with a gun, Vincent said

A short time later deputies located Willis at his residence at which time he was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with home invasion; aggravated cruelty to animals; and two counts of aggravated assault.
Judge Kendrick Guidry set his bond at $14,000.

The dog suffered severe lacerations and was transported to a local emergency veterinarian office where he was treated for his injuries.
Deputy Dylan Davis is the arresting deputy on this case.  Det. John Coffman is the lead investigator on this case.
