Raekwon Arcement (B/M, 21) was arrested in September of 2017 after he was found hiding at 1251 Louis Stream Circle during a search warrant. He was initially arrested on an LPSO warrant for Aggravated Assault with a Firearm and three (3) warrants from the 17th JDC for Failing to Appear in Court on Traffic Offenses.

The Thibodaux Police Department got involved on September 6th, 2017, after being called to the 200 Block of Sanders Street where the victim of a shooting was conscious but bleeding profusely. The victim was taken to the hospital as Thibodaux Police Detectives were called in to investigate.
During the course of the investigation, Detectives learned that days before the shooting Carmicheal Anderson and Raekwon Arcement wanted to buy drugs from the victim. When the three of them met to make the deal, Anderson and Arcement tried paying the victim with fake money. The victim refused to sell the drugs, so Anderson pulled a gun on the victim. Anderson and Arcement then robbed the victim.
The shooting is still under investigation.
