“I know that there is a tremendous amount of physical evidence and scientific evidence has been collected overnight and through today and some of it will be video,” NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas told our partners at WWL-TV on Tuesday, discussing the rape and kidnapping of a Garden District woman the previous evening. “We just don’t know the quality of it yet. Our message to these perpetrators is we know a whole lot more about you than you think we know. You may want to consider your options of turning yourself in.”
WWL also confirmed that it took EMS nearly 20 minutes to respond to the victim’s call, and that by the time they arrived, she had already been taken to the hospital by a police officer.
