LSU student jailed on rape counts

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Police say an LSU transfer student from the United Kingdom has been accused of repeatedly raping a woman on campus over the weekend.
An affidavit of probable cause says 20-year-old Simon James Taylor allegedly raped the woman inside a portable restroom and his LeJeune Hall LSU dorm room.
Police say the woman, whose age was not released, was attacked late Saturday and early Sunday after meeting Taylor and drinking an alcoholic beverage he bought her at a restaurant.
LSU Police were notified of the incident Sunday and arrested Taylor at his dorm.
Taylor was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count each of simple forcible rape and unlawful purchase of an alcoholic beverage.
