HOUSTON, TX (KPLC) - An Orange, Texas man was arrested on Tuesday afternoon at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston on charges stemming from an investigation into a rape and kidnapping that happened on October 17 in Beauregard Parish.

Dr. Chukwuldi Milford Ibezim was returning to the United States from Nigeria on Tuesday when he was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. He was booked into the Harris County jail.

Authorities with the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office have been investigating a reported rape and kidnapping of a young woman who was found disoriented, walking along a rural highway near Starks on October 17.

Investigators, working with ICE agents in Texas, were able to substantiate the victims account and located Ibezim at a clinic in Port Arthur.

Ibezim, who operates the clinic, has been charged with one count of Forcible Rape and Second Degree Kidnapping. Pending an extradition hearing in Houston, he will be transported to the Beauregard Parish Jail.

His bond has been set at $225,000.
