A Westlake woman has been arrested for attempted murder after a man told neighbors someone was trying to kill him.

Westlake Police Chief Chris Wilyre said his office received a call Friday morning about a man banging on a door screaming for help, saying someone was trying to kill him.

Wilrye said when officers arrived they found Christopher Kwan bleeding from his mouth and under his chin. Kwan told officers he had been attacked and needed help.

“Officers began to preform life-saving measures on Kwan until Acadian Ambulance arrived on scene,” Wilrye said.

Kwan told officers 32-year-old Kerri Bradberry had attacked him and while officers were tending to his injuries, Bradberry arrived on the scene.

“Officers were able to detain Bradberry without incident,” Wilrye said.

He was transported to Lake Charles Memorial Hospital by Acadian Ambulance and was later transferred to Lafayette General Hospital.

Bradberry was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center for one count of attempted second-degree murder, one count of aggravated second-degree battery and three counts of domestic abuse battery child endangerment.

Kwan is in stable condition. This investigation is still ongoing.
