Mark Ferguson, 49

A Baton Rouge man who is out on bond for a 2015 child sex charge was arrested Thursday, accused of raping a woman he met on an online dating service.

Mark Ferguson, 49, is accused of slapping the woman, pushing her onto his bed and raping her, despite the woman repeatedly saying ‘No’ and screaming, the arrest report says.

Ferguson met the woman in August through an online dating service, and she told police they had dated for a few weeks, the report says. But after a date in October in which they went out to eat then back to Ferguson’s house, he raped her, the victim told police.

Ferguson is currently out on a $100,000 bond in a first-degree rape case from 2017, where he is accused of raping an 11-year-old girl two years prior.

East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III said that case is still pending in court.

Ferguson, 2010 Aubinwood Dr., was booked into Parish Prison on first-degree rape.
