Police Chief confident suspect is responsible for other home invasions
BATON ROUGE - In an interview on 2une In Thursday, BRPD Police Chief Carl Dabadie said he is "confident" that the Vorris Mouton is responsible for other home invasions in the Baton Rouge area.
Dabadie said, "You don't want to say 100%, but I am pretty confident that this is the guy that was doing the home invasions, but we don't have positive evidence to link him to all of these at this point."
Mouton is accused of attacking women during two home invasions in Baton Rouge while on supervised release from prison. He remains in jail on a parole hold after his arrest Tuesday on suspicion of home invasion and sexual battery.
Investigators arrested Mouton Monday in connection with that crime, then charged him Tuesday with a home invasion and sexual battery which happened Jan. 17 in the Sherwood Forest subdivision. They said DNA from that scene connected Mouton to the crime.
Police continue to investigate three other home invasions and sexual assaults which happened a few days before the Jan. 17 incident. Dabadie warns residents to "stay vigilant and not relax just yet, [while] they make sure that this is the guy."
