Trey Brown, 19, 5515 Prescott Road, Baton Rouge, was booked into Parish Prison on a count of armed robbery.

Brown and another man approached the victim outside his Anna Street home, the warrant says.

Man arrested insexual battery case

Baton Rouge police arrested a 20-year-old man Sunday accused of having sex with a woman who, in the dark, thought he was another man, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Melvin Winchester, 5340 Clayton St., Baton Rouge, was booked into Parish Prison on a count of sexual battery.

The victim told police she was having consensual sex with a man at a Clayton Street home, the affidavit says.

The man left the room, and Winchester entered several minutes later, the affidavit says.

The woman thought Winchester was the other man because the room was dark and she could not see him well, the affidavit says. Winchester and the woman then had sex.

The victim later turned on the light and discovered Winchester was there, the affidavit says.

Winchester told police he entered the dark room and had sex with the woman, the affidavit says.
