Detectives from the Baton Rouge Police Department have issued a warrant for the arrest of 30-year-old Raynon Oubre of Baton Rouge on first-degree rape and several other counts.

According to arrest documents, the victim alleges Oubre punched her in the face and then dragged her down an alley between a popular sports bar and an apartment complex on Hollydale Avenue. The victim alleges that it was then that Oubré told her he had a knife, then pulled down his shorts and raped her.

Documents indicate that the victim had the courage to escape and flee from Oubré, after hearing another person in the area.

“We think it’s him,” said Sgt. L’Jean McKneely with BRPD.

Oubre is currently being held in West Feliciana Parish Detention Center for unauthorized use of furniture (stolen vehicle).

Sheriff Brian Spillman said his agency was also contacted by the Southern University Police Department about a similar incident on its campus. He was also contacted about another similar incident by detectives in Harris County, Texas.

Arrest documents indicate that in a previous incident, Oubre was accused of harassing women outside OLOL Hospital in Baton Rouge until the BRPD Uniform Patrol contacted him and told him to leave.

Oubre faces charges in East Baton Rouge Parish for first-degree rape, second-degree kidnapping, sexual assault, and common assault.

It is not yet known when Oubre could be extradited to Baton Rouge.
