Repair man accused of raping teen with Asperger's
BATON ROUGE - Police accused a Walker man recently of raping a 19-year-old woman who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, which investigators said leaves her vulnerable to people taking advantage of her.
Detectives charged 49-year-old Ron Monroe with rape and sexual battery for the incident, which investigators said happened on Oct. 30.
Police said they were told by the victim's mother that Monroe had been doing repairs at their home for months when he raped the teen. Police said Monroe also took nude pictures of the girl, and refused to listen to the teen when she told him to stop.
Detectives said the teen's condition leaves her uneducated about the social aspects of sexuality and at risk for being victimized.
Police booked Monroe into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail, where he was given a $60,000 bond.
