Baton Rouge man accused of beating and raping a woman after kidnapping her from her home, deputies report _lowres

Damion Thompson, 38, was arrested on counts of domestic abuse, second-degree kidnapping, first-degree rape and home invasion.

A Baton Rouge man was arrested Wednesday and is accused of kidnapping a woman Monday night, punching and beating her with a small scooter and a belt, then raping her.

The woman said she was at her apartment with two friends at 11 p.m. Monday when Damion Thompson, 38, showed up uninvited, an East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office report says. The woman refused to let him in, but Thompson forced his way into the home.

Despite pleas from the woman, her friends left after Thompson threatened to stab them with a screwdriver. Thompson then picked up a piece of the door frame from another time when he kicked the door in, and he hit the woman with it, the report said.

He then dragged her into his truck, saying, “You gonna disappear tonight,” the report says.

Thompson took the woman to an apartment where he beat her with a small scooter, stomped her head with his foot and hit her with a belt, the report says. He then raped her.

Thompson also warned that if she told police about what happened, they would take her children away, the report said.

The following day the woman told deputies what had happened and they noted her injuries.

Thompson, of 2447 E. Mason Ave., was booked into Parish Prison on counts of domestic abuse battery, second-degree kidnapping, first-degree rape and home invasion.
