East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies on Thursday arrested a 40-year-old man accused of raping a woman he had been playing cards with at his home in the Gardere area.
The victim told detectives she was friends with Christopher Haney and went to his house Thursday evening to play cards, according to an arrest report. At some point in the evening, Haney took the victim to his bedroom, threw her onto his bed and raped her, the report says.
When the victim broke free and ran from the house, deputies who were on patrol in the Gardere neighborhood saw Haney chasing her down the street.
Haney later admitted the rape to detectives, the report says.
Haney, 8966 GSRI Ave., Baton Rouge, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of forcible rape.
