BRPD arrest man for rape, kidnapping and domestic abuse
BATON ROUGE- BRPD arrested 38-year-old Damion Thompson for the kidnapping, rape and beating of a Baton Rouge woman on Tuesday.
According to BRPD, the incident took place late Monday night when the victim was with two of her friends at her apartment in the 2100 block of 75th Avenue.
Thompson showed up to her home around 11:00 p.m. without permission. The victim did not want to let Thompson in her home as they have had previous domestic abuse incidents.
Thompson pried the screen door of the home open and entered. The victim hid behind her friends, but Thompson threatened to stab them with a screwdriver if they did not let her go with him. The friends of the victim then went outside of the home, leaving the victim.
Thompson beat the victim with a piece of the door frame and drug her by her hair outside of the home.
Thompson then forced her into his truck and told her “You gonna disappear tonight,” according to BRPD.
Thompson then drove to his home in the 2400 block of East Mason Avenue and upon arrival, pulled the victim across the seat through the driver’s door and out of the truck.
He then grabbed a small scooter and beat the victim with it and stepped on her head. He then continued to punch her and hit her with his belt and demanded her to take her clothes off and walk outside.
The victim did so, and Thompson demanded her back inside and raped her.
Moments later, BRPD units then arrived at Thompson’s home. Thompson threatened the victim not to speak to officers, saying that they would take her children away if she did.
According to BRPD, the victim spoke to officers, but was scared to say what took place.
While the victim spoke with officers, the victim’s child’s father showed up and agreed to take her home with him for her safety, according to BRPD.
The victim then went to BRPD Fourth District station the next day and pursued criminal charges against Thompson where officers could see her wounds from the incident the night before.
Thompson was arrested and charged with one count of domestic abuse battery, one count of second degree kidnapping, one count of first degree rape and one count of home invasion.
