According to the arrest warrant, the victim told police she was raped at East Campus Apartments (ECA) on April 23. After the alleged incident, she called for help the report notes she had physical signs of abuse. 

Months later, on October 22, the victim called police because she claimed to have found the man who raped her in April.

The arrest report states that the victim claimed to have seen her attacker on campus during LSU’s home football game against Ole Miss. The victim said she was walking to ECA to meet friends when the suspect drove up and asked her if she needed a ride.

Authorities stated she got in the car with the man she believed to be her attacker because she wanted to get his identity. They added she took a picture of his license plate, got his phone number and was given a name. Investigators said the victim reported the alleged crime that night and passed on the information she gathered.

According to the warrant, the information eventually led police to Ovuede.

LSU officials confirm that Ovuede is currently enrolled as a student and the incident is being investigated in accordance with the sexual misconduct policy.

Ovuede is charged with second-degree rape and is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a $25,000.
