According to Turner's arrest affidavit, the victim told deputies Turner came up to her while she was in the bathroom and said he wanted to have sex with her, but she refused. She said Turner then forced her against the wall and pinned her arms behind her back while he raped her.
The victim said she told Turner multiple times to stop, but he refused.
Authorities issued a warrant for his arrest Wednesday, then booked him into the parish jail the following day.
