Arrest warrant provides new details in rape case against Darren Sharper

Updated:

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Darren Sharper's arrest warrant provides new details about the alleged rapes in New Orleans. 


According to a sworn document written by detective Derrick Williams of the NOPDt's sex crimes unit, 38 year-old Darren Sharper and his acquaintance 26 year-old Erik Nunez admitted to others that they both had sex with two women "without their knowledge or permission."

The two women described the alleged separate attacks to police. They said they awoke "disoriented" from a "stupor" and believed former Saints star

Darren Sharper was having sex with them early in the morning on September 23rd without their consent.

The application for arrest warrant says each woman reported that Sharper was "completely nude on top of her."

The document says another person who had a key to Sharper's apartment in the 700 block of Tchoupitoulas said they arrived after the alleged incidents, entered the apartment and saw

Sharper standing in boxer shorts. The person told police Nunez then exited Sharper's bedroom, also in boxer shorts. Sharper is suspected of raping nine women and drugging 11 people in five states between

September and January. He faces two counts each in Los Angeles and in New Orleans. Authorities in Tempe, Arizona, Las Vegas and Miami have confirmed active investigations into Sharper, but have not yet arrested or charged him.

Sharper remains in jail in Los Angeles. He has a hearing Friday to determine whether he will be extradited to New Orleans. Chief Ronal Serpas says the department declined Sharper's offer to fly himself to New Orleans because of the seriousness of the allegations.

According to Nola.com, police said the New Orleans incidents happened after a night of drinking at downtown bars following the Saints' home victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Sharper met at least one of the women earlier that night at an event for Saints players. Nunez's lawyer Jeff Smith says Nunez works as an event promoter for professional football players.

Sharper pleaded "not guilty" to charges in Los Angeles. His and Nunez's attorneys both say they expect their clients to be fully exonerated.
