Man arrested in rape at Baton Rouge apartment
BATON ROUGE- A man was arrested Tuesday in the October rape of a woman at a Baton Rouge apartment complex, according to police.
They say Dillian Smith approached the woman outside an apartment and tried to get her to agree to have sex with him.
When the woman refused, police say Smith grabbed her around her waist and tried to pull her inside the apartment; she clung onto an outside railing.
At that point, police say another man came out of the apartment and helped Smith pull the woman inside the apartment. Once inside, the man and a third man held the woman down on a bed while Smith raped her.
Smith, 18, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a count of aggravated rape.
