NEW ORLEANS — One of the suspects facing a rape count in the case of LSU student Madison Brooks' death was arrested again for raping a 12-year-old girl in 2020.
18-year-old Kaivon Washington, who is charged with third-degree rape in the Brooks case, was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center on a count of first-degree rape, according to online booking records.
Our partners at NOLA.com obtained arrest records that revealed a victim accused Washington of assaulting her at a Walker pool party in May 2020. Washington was 16 at the time and the girl was 12.
When the rape was reported in March 2021, the victim told police she and several other juveniles had been swimming at an apartment complex when she and a female friend went back to the victim's apartment. They were then joined by Washington and another male friend, the document says.
According to the victim, Washington followed her to a room, pulled a towel off of her, threw her on a bed, covered her mouth and raped her.
The arrest document indicates that investigators revisited the 2020 accusation this week after Washington was arrested in the Brooks case. The new affidavit says Livingston Parish law enforcement spoke to a female juvenile who was in the apartment after the party.
Washington is among four individuals arrested and accused in Brooks' rape, which occurred after they all had been at Reggie's Bar in the Tigerland area in Baton Rouge near LSU's campus.
