New Orleans, La. - Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Deputies arrested a man wanted for simple kidnapping and forcible rape. Bobby Ray Dyson, 23, of Fluker turned himself in to police at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police say that at 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Dyson went over to his ex-girlfriends house and told her that he wanted to talk. Once she exited her house, he grabbed her and forced her into his car, against her will. Dyson continued to detain the victim in his car as he drove to a unknown location north of Arcola, where he aggressively raped the victim.

Dyson then dropped the victim off on side of the road, several blocks from her home and fled.

The victim went home and contacted the sheriff's department. Detectives contacted Dyson and advised him to turn himself in. Dyson turned himself in without incident. He is currently in the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on a $250,000 bond.
