Man held on $280k bond after being charged with aggravated rape

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge man has been arrested and charged with aggravated rape and armed robbery after he was accused of raping a woman while he held a gun to her head.

According to the probable cause affidavit from the Baton Rouge Police Department, 27-year-old Kenny Uncell Davis responded to an ad on the Backpage website around 3 a.m. November 8. After talking on the phone for a short time the woman and Davis decided to meet.

Just after 5 a.m., according to reports, Davis showed up at the woman's apartment and they were walking to the bedroom when the woman says Davis pulled out a black semi automatic handgun, pointed it at her and demanded money. When she told him she had no money, he stated he was going to get sex instead.

Reports say that Davis held the gun to the woman's head while he had sex with her.

After the sexual assault, reports say Davis stole two iPhones from the woman and ran off. The victim drove to a nearby place with a phone and she called police.

A uniformed patrol officer spotted Davis and attempted to make contact with him. Davis ran and was able to get away from the officer.

Davis was spotted a little while later, hiding in a boat parked at a home. Davis tried to run again, but was arrested.

After initially denying the accusations, Davis told investigators he did have intercourse with the woman, but it was consensual.

After questioning by investigators, they learned Davis put the handgun in the recycling container in the backyard of his house and says the victim's cell phones must have fallen out of his pocket while he was running. The gun was found.

Davis was arrested and charged with aggravated rape, armed robbery, resisting an officer and felon in possession of a firearm. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and is being held on a $280,000 bond.

In the police report, the officer notes that Davis was arrested for second degree kidnapping, home invasion, aggravated battery with dangerous weapon, simple burglary and resisting an officer in 2011. All charges in that case were dismissed except for the simple burglary charge. In 2012, he was arrested for illegal possession of a stolen firearm, and aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon. Those charges were also dismissed.

Davis was convicted for the charge of simple burglary from 2011 and was on parole from Feb. 16, 2014 to May 18, 2014.
