BATON ROUGE- A man accused of raping a 13-year-old girl last year was arrested.

Delvin Puckett, 18, was booked into parish prison for forcible rape.

According to the warrant, the victim was trying to hide from a group of girls who she said were trying to fight her in March 2011.

The victim ran into Puckett, who she knew from her neighborhood, and he told her that they could hide from the girls in a vacant apartment, according to the warrant.

Puckett raped the girl after she refused his request for sex, the warrant says. The victim, still afraid of being beat up by the group of girls, said Puckett threatened to make her go outside if she didn't have sex with him.

According to the warrant, Puckett told the victim not to tell anyone about what happened following the rape.
