BR man, 32, arrested in rape at apartment

Baton Rouge police on Thursday night arrested a 32-year-old Baton Rouge man who agreed to bring a drunken female home from a bar, but instead took her to his apartment, where he allegedly raped her.

When the victim woke up in Wyatt Watts’ bed, he told her that they had sex and “she was asking for it,” an affidavit warrant shows.

She left his apartment and went to a hospital, where she told police she blacked out and did not remember anything, the warrant says.

Watts told police the victim was “smashed” and at first she passed out on the floor, but later climbed into his bed, the warrant says.

Police booked Watts, 550 Lee Drive, Apt. 166, into Parish Prison on one count of simple rape, prison records.
