ASCENSION PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) — New Orleans rapper Mystikal is behind bars again after a similar case back in 2019 in Shreveport. He’s accused of rape in Ascension Parish.

Michael Tyler, the rapper known as Mystikal, is facing a new rape charge. Investigators with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office said the charges came after deputies responded to an area hospital where they found a female victim.

“Who was pretty distraught and who had obvious physical injuries to her body. And she advised deputies that she had been sexually assaulted and raped. Along with some other things, she also had some money stolen from her,” said APSO spokesperson Donovan Jackson.

Deputies stated Tyler was taken into custody late Saturday and remains in the Ascension Parish Jail.

“We do know that there was a little bit of conversation about finances, which may be why the victim may have met with him. And then that conversation seems to have gone very far left,” Jackson added.

In addition to the rape charge, Tyler is also facing simple robbery and domestic abuse battery charges. Jackson said Tyler isn’t receiving any special treatment due to his celebrity.

“We’re going to respond to him as we respond to who’s made such a heinous act,” said Jackson.

A post on the rapper’s Instagram page shows he has concerts this month. Right now it’s not known if they will be canceled. His social media has been since made private after allegations.

The Advocate reported Tuesday a judge ruled that Tyler will be held without bond until his trial.
