On August 9, 2020 Duson Police responded to a reported sexual assault in the 300 block of Francis Prejean Circle in Duson. Initial reports indicated that a 20 year old female was assaulted by a known offender after the victim had allegedly been incapacitated by an unknown drug. The victim reported that after an evening out with the offender, she lost track of her mental bearings and apparently passed out in her home. When the victim awoke she discovered the male offender 22 year old Braylon Babineaux of the Branch Community engaged in sexual intercourse with her. The victim reported that she was unable to physically resist as she was in a state of paralysis due to what she believed to be a drug being placed in her alcoholic beverage.

Babineaux surrendered to the Duson Police Department on the early morning hours of August 10, 2020, at which time he was arrested after an interview and booked on a charge of third degree rape into the Acadia Parish Jail. Babineaux remains incarcerated on a $40,000.00 bond.
