LSU police arrested a Lafayette man Wednesday in the rape of a woman in her dorm room over the weekend.
Victor Silva, 19, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of forcible rape.
The victim told police she was at an LSU-area bar with Silva Friday evening when at some point they went to his car, according to an arrest warrant.
She said they may have had sex, but she did not remember what happened because she was drunk, the warrant says.
Several hours later, after the victim returned to her room to sleep, Silva sent her a text, asking if she wanted to meet somewhere.
The victim declined, but told Silva he could come to her room, the warrant says. After he arrived, she told him to leave because she wanted to sleep, but he began groping her, according to the warrant.
The victim told detectives she repeatedly told Silva to stop and even sent a text to one of his friends to see if the friend could help her get Silva to leave, authorities said.
In the text, the victim wrote: “He’s not grasping the concept.”
She said she told Silva she wasn’t interested in his advances, but that he later held her down with his elbows and raped her, police said.
The victim called police and then went to a hospital for a sexual assault exam.
When she made a recorded phone call to Silva about the incident, he told her, “I’m sorry. I didn’t hear you say no,” according to the warrant.
The victim told police she had previously had a sexual relationship with Silva, but their last encounter was in 2014, the warrant says.
Silva, 204 Englewood Drive, Lafayette, is a student at University of Louisiana, Lafayette, said Charlie Bier, a school spokesman.
As of Thursday afternoon, his bail had not been set.
