Deputies arrested a Baton Rouge man at his home Wednesday on armed robbery and aggravated battery an hour after he bailed out of jail on aggravated rape from an earlier incident.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office initially arrested 22-year-old Willie Hill on Dec. 9 and accused him of raping, beating and burning a woman in November. Hill contacted the woman on backpage.com and asked to pay her for sex at a local house, the report says. When the victim arrived, she found the house vacant and tried to leave, but Hill approached her, heated a metal pipe with a torch and burned the woman on her face and body before raping her.
Hill bailed out of Parish Prison on Wednesday night but was arrested about an hour later in a similar incident that took place Dec. 8. In that incident, a woman told deputies Hill called her on backpage.com and asked her to come to a vacant house in the 11000 block of North Engleswood St. and he would pay her for sex. It’s allegedly the same address where the November rape happened. Hill lives two houses away from the vacant house.
The woman, too, found the residence vacant and Hill emerged from a storage shed behind the house, armed with a gun, and demanded money before hitting her in the hand, causing fractures, the report says.
Hill fired two rounds into the air and jumped a nearby fence, running north through some backyards, the report says. Detectives found a spent .40 caliber shell casing at the scene.
A search of Hill’s home revealed a .40 caliber magazine with five .40 caliber rounds, as well as a pair of Nike Air Jordan tennis shoes, the tread of which match tracks found at the scene, the report says.
