EBR Officials: 75-yr-old woman raped this morning after 45-yr-old man broke into her home

According to the victim, while using the restroom in her own home, she said she was startled by the accused allegedly standing in the doorway of her bathroom wearing a ski mask, underwear and socks.

A 45-yr-old man is facing first degree rape and home invasion charges after officials say he allegedly broke into a 75-yr-old woman’s home in East Baton Rouge Parish and then raped her.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case, but due to protecting the victim, an exact location or neighborhood cannot be provided. The only information provided when it comes to an address is in East Baton Rouge Parish in Louisiana.

The accused is Conway Tullier, 45. Officials said the incident took place around 9:30am on Tuesday morning.

According to the victim, while using the restroom in her own home, she said she was startled by the accused allegedly standing in the doorway of her bathroom wearing a ski mask, underwear and socks, all while holding a kitchen knife. Tullier’s arrest documents said, “The accused forced the victim to consume alcohol that he found inside of residence. He then undressed the victim and forced her into giving and receiving oral sexual intercourse with him while holding the knife.”

Officials said Tullier then unsuccessfully tried to have sex but could not get an erection. That’s when the victim said she was forced to perform oral sex on him again until he fell asleep and passed out, allowing the victim to escape and call 911.

The victim added she did not know Tullier and had never seen him before.

Deputies said Tullier was still in the victim’s bed asleep and naked when they arrived on scene. They also said they found the kitchen knife, black ski mask and Tullier’s underwear in the victim’s bedroom.  

Officials did find tennis shoe imprints in the dirt behind the victim’s garage near a wooded area that backs up to her property. They also said they found Tullier’s backpack with some of his belongings in it located off the garage area of the home. The shoe imprints found did match those of Tullier’s, according to deputies.

The victim was taken to Woman’s Hospital for a rape kit to be completed.

Tullier was arrested. He did admit to unlawfully entering the victim’s home and consuming alcohol while inside but then asked for a lawyer to answer any further questions.

Tullier is now at the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison charged with first degree rape and home invasion.
