A Minden man is under arrest for forcible rape on an incident that is reported to have occurred more than a year ago.
Za’Chariahe Walker, 19, of the 300 block of Shane Drive, was arrested Thursday, Sept. 3, on a warrant for forcible rape. Bond was set at $100,000.
Det. Keith King Jr. says the incident occurred in late spring 2014. He says when investigators first got the call, it was in reference to a teen who showed up at the emergency room claiming she’d been raped.
During the course of the investigation, he says she named five individuals, including Walker. All denied being at the scene during the time the alleged rape occurred.
“Mr. Walker denied it several times, saying he was dating the victim’s sister,” King said.
Investigators obtained DNA samples from each person the victim named, and only Walker came back as a match, King said.
The incident was reported to have taken place behind the post office. The victim was 15 at the time.
Walker was booked at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
