NEW ORLEANS -  The search for three local men wanted in connection with a Jan. 26 gang rape ended Friday night.

Just after 10 p.m, members of the New Orleans Police Department, Special Operations Division, and the U.S. Marshals Task Force located Glenn Elliot, 17, Darren Holmes, 19, and Jermaine Rumley, 21, hiding out at a residence in the 2800 block of St. Louis Street.

All three men were taken into custody without incident and brought to Central Lock-Up where they were all booked with armed robbery, aggravated kidnapping, and aggravated rape.

Another alleged accomplice in the incident, Brian Beasley, 21, turned himself in on Feb. 1 and was booked with the same charges.

The arrests stem from the kidnapping of a 53-year-old woman in the 4100 block of Thalia Street and the subsequent rape at an abandoned residence in the 1300 block of S. Gayoso Street.

Neighbors on Thalia Street said the woman was a home health nurse who was just leaving a client's home when she was kidnapped.

Katherine Lang is also home health professional who lives on the block where the kidnapping happened. Lang said the unthinkable crime has affected the entire neighborhood.

"I lived here all together about 17 years, never had anything like this to happen. It scares me," said Lang. "I feel so sorry for the family and the lady. I know what she's going through. I never been there. But I could feel what she's going through."

NOPD would not comment on the case on camera. But in a press release, they noted that each man charged in the case has a long rap sheets. 19-year-old Holmes had 16 prior arrests for felonies and misdemeanors.
