BATON ROUGE- Michael Rushing, 47, was arrested early Saturday morning for an attack that put women in the Baton Rouge area on edge.

Rushing is charged with aggravated rape and 2nd degree kidnapping.

He's accused of taking a woman at gunpoint Friday from a medical complex parking lot near Essen, bringing her to Iberville Parish and raping her before dropping her off hours later in a parking lot near LSU.

"Rushing told the victim some details about his personal life, which the victim informed investigating detectives," police said in a news release.

Rushing was developed as a suspect from other tips.

Rushing, who lives on Brown Road in Baker, was arrested on Rollins Road in Zachary.

State Police and Zachary Police assisted in the arrest.
