Police arrest accused serial rapist

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Police say they have arrested a Baton Rouge man who is accused of raping at least three women.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reports that Bryan LeDuff, 28, was arrested on Wednesday, October 26 around 10 p.m.

LeDuff is accused of raping an 18-year old victim on October 3, 2016, a 22-year old victim on October 17, 2016 and a 19-year old victim on October 26, 2016.

According to the probable cause reports, each case involved violent encounters.

"The victim advised that she must have gone unconscious between being hit in the head and her clothing being taken off," states the report about one of the incidents. "The victim began to scream and the defendant told her that he would duct tape her mouth if she didn't stop yelling."

Rape kits were performed on each of the victims and was collected by the sexual assault nurse with the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office. Those kits were then processed by the Louisiana State Police crime lab. The results of the evidence collected allegedly connects LeDuff to each case.

LeDuff was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and charged with three counts of first-degree rape. His bond is currently set at $515,000.

Officials say he is additionally charged with two counts of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated battery, and two counts of false imprisonment and sexual battery. He also faces a second-degree murder charge in connection with the shooting death of a woman found in a parking lot in March 2015.
