BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A Baton Rouge man was arrested Saturday night and charged with attempted second degree murder after reports say he stabbed his ex-girlfriend's father in the arm and in the lung.

Around 9 p.m. Saturday, Baton Rouge Police were called to the 1100 block of N. Donmoor Avenue in reference to a stabbing.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, 18-year-old Jeremy Blouin told police his door was kicked in and while acting in self-defense, he stabbed his ex-girlfriend's father with a knife he was already holding.

Reports show Blouin, his ex-girlfriend and her current boyfriend all live together. 

During the investigation, officers learned the ex-girlfriend's father knocked on the door and one of the residents opened the door. The victim and Blouin got into an argument and reports say Blouin charged the man and the man was thrown to the floor.

Witnesses told police Blouin pulled a large dragon knife and stabbed the man twice.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he had to be put on a breathing machine.

Blouin was arrested and charged with attempted second degree murder. His bond has not been set.
