BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – One of the men accused of raping LSU student Madison Brooks is back behind bars.
Kaivon Washington, 18, is accused of raping another girl in 2020. A Walker police detective says Washington allegedly raped a 12-year-old when he was 15.
BRProud has requested arrest documents from law enforcement, but they say they cannot share further information because Washington was a juvenile at the time of the alleged crime.
Walker Police did confirm that the victim waited a year to file a report.
Washington was arrested after a witness came forward to back up the victim’s claim, according to the Walker Police Department.
“Once I spoke with the witness, had enough probable cause at the time,” said Walker Police Lead Detective Sargent Doug Benson.
A bond hearing has not been set and Washington is still behind bars at the time this story was published.
