Lafayette crime blotter for May 20, 2014

Iberia man booked on counts of rape, battery

Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office officials say a New Iberia man who forced a woman at knife point to drive to a secluded area and then raped her was jailed Sunday after being caught in Lafayette.

Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested James Neil White Sr., 47, on a warrant for aggravated rape, auto theft and simple battery, Lt. Richard Fleming said in a news release.

Patrol deputies discovered the victim in a rural area near Loreauville on Saturday afternoon and took her to a local hospital, where she was treated and interviewed by detectives, Fleming said.

Fleming said the ordeal began when the man asked the woman for a ride, then brandished a knife and ordered her to secluded area, where he allegedly hit her several times and raped her. White left the victim and fled in her vehicle, Fleming said.

Lafayette police arrested White on Sunday at a Lafayette residence. White remains in the Iberia Parish Jail on $1.5 million bail.
