The incident was reported at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the corner of Hickory and Adams, according to the maps.
The victim was forced into a residence and sexually assaulted, according to the initial police report.
The location is one block from Tuesday’s evening’s home-invasion in which a 22-year-old man was pistol-whipped by intruders while visiting a friend, or about five blocks from a Panola Street home where two women were tied up by gunmen last Friday afternoon. Earlier last week, a woman was attacked by a man who tried to strangle her in her home on Green Street on the other side of Carrollton Avenue, but she escaped.
Wednesday’s incident is classified as an aggravated rape, which is usually defined under state law as non-consensual sexual intercourse in which the resistance of the victim is overcome by force, threats or other means.
NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas is holding a news conference at 12:45 p.m. today to discuss an arrest made in the rape. Uptown Messenger will cover the news conference live.
