Police issued a warrant Thursday for a suspect in a rape that occurred on LSU's campus during the Tigers' football game against Texas A&M.

Officials are looking for Albert Carlos Ford of Atlanta, Ga. Ford is accused of raping a 21-year-old woman in a portable toilet on Nov. 23. DNA taken from the scene was a match to the 32-year-old Ford, and witnesses tailgating remember seeing a man matching Ford's description leave that same area around the same time as the reported rape.

The account, from the Baton Rouge Advocate:

The woman told investigators that as she walked into a portable toilet between Francioni Hall and the Food Science Building a man shoved her in the back and locked the door behind them. The man then turned her away from him, placed his fingers in her mouth and removed both of their pants, according to the warrant.

The woman told detectives that she cried and begged the rapist not to hurt her, the warrant says.

When the woman saw a condom wrapper fall to the ground, she tried to scream. But the man grabbed her by the throat and said, “if you scream again I will snap your neck,” a detective wrote in the warrant.

The rape lasted between five and seven minutes before the man removed his condom, threw it in the toilet and exited the portable toilet, according to the warrant.


Update: Reader Luke passed along this article from 2011 reporting about a then-30-year-old Albert Carlos Ford from Atlanta being arrested for selling counterfeit Cowboys-Bucs tickets.
