Many Police Officers were called to Walmart on Jan. 12 for a disturbance that involved a customer pulling a knife on another customer in the parking area of the store. Officers arrived at 7:30 pm and found that the unidentified victim had left the store before officers arrived. After watching video of the incident, it was determined that the suspect was hiding in a restroom at the rear of the store. Officers found the individual locked in a stall but he was talked into coming out without incident. A knife was taken from the suspect.
The detained subject gave an incorrect name to officers at first, but later the officers were to identify the male as Eric Terrell Wilson, 33 of Coushatta. Wilson had an outstanding warrant from Red River Parish for Aggravated Assault with a knife. Wilson was booked into the Sabine Parish Detention Center for the outstanding warrant and local charges.
