Fourth suspect arrested in rape of Tulane student, friend
NEW ORLEANS- A fourth suspect has been arrested in connection with the alleged gang rape of a Tulane student and her friend earlier this month.
Matthew Farrell, 22, was jailed early Monday on two counts of first-degree rape, according to WWL. Three Algiers-based marines were tied to the attack last week.
Alexander Davenport is suspected of sexually assaulting both women. Antonio Landrum and Jared Anderson face accusations that they raped one of the victims. Those three were jailed Thursday.
The women were both intoxicated at a bar the night of April 14 when they met Landrum, who was there with a group of friends. The women asked him for help getting to the 6100 block of South Claiborne Avenue, where one of the women lived, according to the account.
The assaults allegedly happened after Landrum helped the women get home and was joined there by Davenport, Anderson and Farrell.
Landrum, assigned to his unit’s headquarters, holds the rank of Private First Class, Anderson, also assigned to headquarters, holds the rank of Lance Corporal. Davenport, assigned to the logistics group, also is a Lance Corporal.
