Man arrested after allegedly kidnapping LSU student on campus, raping her

Police arrested a 20-year-old Baton Rouge man Friday night accused of kidnapping a female LSU student, hijacking her car and raping her in an off campus location Wednesday evening.

According to our partners at The Advocate,  Frank Herrera Jr. was arrested after police found his DNA profile matched evidence recovered from the victim's vehicle, according to his arrest report. Police do not believe Herrera knew the victim knew before attacking her, said LSU Police Lt. Kevin Scott at a news conference Friday night.

Herrera confessed to police that he kidnapped and sexually assaulted the victim, the report says. He was booked into Parish Prison on counts of second-degree kidnapping, second-degree rape, armed robbery, possession of schedule I drugs and possessing a firearm on school property.
