LAROSE, La. — Deputies in Louisiana say they discovered a woman’s ex-boyfriend had been secretly living in the attic of her home after he attacked her, reports CBS affiliate WWLTV.

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office says Taylor Broussard, 21, forced his way into the woman’s Larose home and began hitting her with his fists following a verbal argument May 3.

A juvenile who was home at the time reportedly shielded the woman as Broussard allegedly struck her and threatened her with a knife.
