N.O. police investigate Monday night rape

New Orleans police are investigating the rape of a woman Monday night.

Police said the woman was in a hotel room when she heard “multiple” men’s voices about 10:30 p.m. The men then raped her, according to a preliminary police log.

Police could not immediately say if the woman let the men into the room or if they forced their way in, nor could police say if the victim and men knew each other.

The woman reported the incident on Tuesday evening. The location where police said the rape happened is in the 1900 block of Delachaise Street, though that area is largely residential, with only a handful of corner stores and the campus of Walter L. Cohen High School nearby.
