BATON ROUGE- A man from Baker is behind bars, again, accused of rape.
Christopher Nehemiah Sims, 19, has been arrested and charged with rape twice in the past five months.
A former co-worker, who asked not to be identified, described Sims as quiet, but someone she felt uncomfortable around.
"The way he would look at you, he would look at you crazy," she said.
She told News 2 Sims didn't come back to work after he was arrested in March.
Arrest warrants accuse Sims of a physical attack on a woman, followed by repeated rapes. According to the documents he was booked in East Baton Rouge Parish jail with bond was set at $26,500.
Sims got out of jail. Arrest warrants show that about three months later he was arrested again for rape. According to investigators, Sims knocked on the victim's hotel room door, asked for a cigarette, and walked inside. Sims allegedly forced the woman to leave the room then proceeded to rape her.
"From my reading of the report, what he's done to these women, especially on the second one, it really concerns me of what he'll do next if he gets out," Chief Knaps said. "Hopefully the bond will be very stiff this time and when he goes to court he will be exposed for what he is, which is a predator."
Sims' bond for the second arrest has been set at $150,000. The District Attorney is working to get a judge to revoke and increase the $26,500 dollar bond in the first arrest.
