LAFAYETTE, LA (NBC33) — Two men were arrested in connection to a robbery and rape investigation that happened back in June 2013.
The Lafayette Police Department arrested Demetrice D. Culbreth, 22, and Mitchell A. Flemming, 22. Both are charged with Armed Robbery (2 counts) and Aggravated Rape (1 count).
The incident happened at roughly 1:00 a.m. on Monday, June 17. The couple was standing between two buildings in the 100 block of Belle Fontaine Drive when they were approached by the two suspects.
The male and female victim told officers that the two men pulled out guns and demanded their cell phones and car keys.
At some point both suspects sexually assaulted the female. A third victim walked up while it was happening and also ordered to the ground and robbed.
