Sheriff Craig Webre announced the arrest of Michael Boykin (age 38) of Lockport on September 28, 2015. At around 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 20, deputies responded to a housing unit on Bollinger Road in Lockport. They learned the man assigned to the unit was there with another man, Michael Boykin, earlier that day. Boykin asked the man to borrow $200, but the man declined. At that point, Boykin allegedly retrieved a canned food item, placed the can inside a sock, and repeatedly struck the man on the head. After the can had busted open, Boykin allegedly retrieved a fire extinguisher and began striking the man with it. At one point, the victim dropped his wallet, and Boykin picked it up and fled the scene. Several hundred dollars were reportedly inside the wallet. Deputies were unable to locate Boykin at that time, and warrants were obtained for his arrest. Then on Monday, September 28, Boykin was discovered by authorities in Calcasieu Parish, and he was taken into custody. He was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center where he was booked on warrants for Armed Robbery and Aggravated Battery with a Dangerous Weapon. His bond was set at $60,000.
