CLINTON — East Feliciana Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested five people accused of raping a woman in the back of a pickup truck early Saturday, Sheriff Talmadge Bunch said.
Deputies responding to a call about shots fired on Hockaday Lane, off Plank Road east of Slaughter, found a naked woman in the truck who appeared to have been drugged, Bunch said.
The woman, who was unresponsive when deputies questioned her, was taken by ambulance to a hospital, the sheriff said.
Deputies arrested Rick James Cordova, 23; Dawnte Lamar Jones, 19; and Pete Adame Perez Jr., all of Alvin Texas; David Flores, 31, of Gilroy, Calif.; and Fred Felix, 25, of Rio Grande City, Texas, Bunch said.
Deputies booked each of the men with forcible rape and illegal discharge of a weapon.
Bunch said deputies recovered a gun from the truck but the reason for firing the weapon was not immediately determined.
The incident remains under investigation, he said.
