Two accused in kidnapping, attempted rape
BATON ROUGE - Police arrested two Baton Rouge teens after investigators said the pair robbed a woman and attempted to rape her at gunpoint.
Officers charged Jacorey James, 19, and Karzzerick Murray, 17, with armed robbery, attempted aggravated rape, and second degree kidnapping. They also charged James with gun and drug violations.
Detectives said the victim told them James and Murray robbed her while she was at James' residence on North 29th Street Tuesday. She said James held a gun to her head and threatened to shoot her unless she performed a sex act on him. Detectives said she started crying so hard the teens let her go, and she contacted police.
Officers said they arrested James at his home, and apprehended Murray at a nearby bus stop. During a search of James' residence police said they found the gun believed to have been used in the crime, as well as some marijuana.
Police booked James and Murray into the parish jail.
