Woman kidnapped from home at gunpoint, raped in East Baton Rouge Parish
CENTRAL - Three men have been arrested after they allegedly kidnapped and raped a woman in East Baton Rouge Parish late last month.
According to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, the victim was taken from her Central home on Dec. 28. The victim says she was leaving her residence when an unknown male approached her and put a gun to her head.
"If you cooperate, I'm not going to hurt you," the man allegedly said, forcing the victim into her own vehicle.
Two other men then got into the car and blindfolded the victim before driving to another location within the parish. The three then allegedly forced the woman to perform oral sex.
The suspects then dropped the victim off at another address in Central, taking off with her vehicle and cell phone. The car was later found abandoned in Hamilton BREC Park.
DNA evidence reviewed by the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab led to multiple arrests in the case, including Kendell Pete, Joshua Joseph and Denver Morris.
Deputies say Pete was also a fugitive out of Evangeline Parish.
