The manager of a Walker-based sports training company was arrested again Tuesday after a second woman in a week accused him of rape, the Sheriff’s Office said.
After discovering that Jason Paul Galjour was accused Sept. 9 in the rape of a woman, a second woman came forward Sunday and told deputies that Galjour raped her multiple times between March and June 2012, the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office report says.
The victim told deputies the first instance occurred in March 2012 when Galjour, 36, called and asked her to stop by his house as she passed it on her way to the gym, according to the report. When she arrived at his house, he let her inside and took her to the living room where he raped her, the report says.
He then pulled her to a bedroom and assaulted her again, according to the report. She told deputies she believed Galjour was too strong for her to resist, so she did what she was told.
She said that Galjour told her, “I’ve been waiting for you to turn 18,” the report says.
The victim told investigators that Galjour raped her on four other occasions, including once at Precision Athletes, a Walker business where he worked, according to the report. She was at the business for private lessons from him, the report says. She said he also raped her at his home twice and at another residence on Burbank Drive.
Tommy Damico, Galjour’s attorney, said Tuesday, “We’re looking into the new allegations.”
The woman told deputies she had trained with Galjour for at least three years prior to the first assault, according to the report, though what sport she was training in was not specified.
She said Galjour started behaving inappropriately around her before she turned 18 years old, the report says. She also told investigators she did not report him because she was scared of him and that she wanted to pursue her sport and feared he would hurt her chances if she didn’t obey him, the report says.
Ernie Ballard, a spokesman for LSU, said Tuesday that Galjour was “employed as a transient worker as a cheer coach on and off from July 1, 2005, through April 30, 2007.”
Galjour, 2372 Ferndale Ave., was booked into Parish Prison Tuesday morning on five counts of second-degree rape. He was released on $100,000 bail.
Photos of Galjour still appear on Precision Athletes’ website, and the business did not immediately respond to calls.
Galjour was first booked into Parish Prison Sept. 9 on one count of second-degree rape when another woman reported him to authorities. He was released that time on $50,000 bail.
