Deputies say a Montegut man was arrested after being accused of beating and raping a woman he  followed from a Raceland bar Thursday.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre said 36-year-old Teles Guidry was booked for two counts of first-degree rape and three counts of second-degree battery.

According to Webre, deputies were called to a Raceland hospital around 8:30 a.m. Thursday after a woman said she was beaten. The woman told investigators that she got into an argument with Guidry at a bar earlier in the morning and decided to leave.

The woman told investigators that Guidry followed her outside and struck her multiple times before dragging her to his truck and leaving the scene. Webre said Guidry later beat the woman and forced her to have sex twice.
