Man, 81, arrested in 1980s rape case

LAROSE, LA (WVUE) - An 81-year-old Larose man is accused raping of a juvenile nearly 30 years ago, according to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office.

Warren Danos, 81, was arrested last week and released after posting bond.

Detectives say they were contacted by a woman stating that she was victimized by Danos nearly 30 years ago.

Following an investigation, detectives say Danos allegedly had sexual contact with the victim over the course of approximately two years, from 1984 to 1986. The woman was less than 10-years-old at the time.

On July 22, detectives made contact with Danos who refused to provide a statement relative to the allegations. He was placed under arrest and booked with aggravated rape.

He was subsequently released after posting $5,000 bond.
