FLUKER, LA (WAFB) - A man from Fluker, La in Tangipahoa Parish turned himself into the Sheriff's Office Tuesday evening after being charged with simple kidnapping and forcible rape.

Deputies say 23-year-old Bobby Ray Dyson contacted a former girlfriend and said he was parked in her driveway and wanted to talk. When the woman walked out of her home, reports say Dyson grabbed her and forced her into his vehicle against her will.

Dyson drove to an unknown location and, according to Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Deputies, aggressively raped the victim. Dyson then dropped the woman off on the side of the road, several blocks away from her home, and drove off.

The woman walked back to her home and called authorities.

Detectives were able to contact Dyson and told him to turn himself in. Dyson complied and is now in the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on a $250,000 bond.
