BATON ROUGE - Bond for the illegal immigrant charged with the attempted murder, kidnapping and rape is set at $475,000.
Manuel Mejia was taken into custody by investigators Thursday, hours after the woman he is accused of sexually assaulting received treatment for a cut to the throat. 
Mejia and the victim arranged for a meet up where Baton Rouge detectives say she went willing, but the encounter turned violent after police spokesman says the victim was bound and raped for hours at a Baker home before being dropped off in Baton Rouge near Harry Drive and Airline. 
Investigators believe Mejia could tied to other unsolved rapes in the area.
