A 26 year old Church Point man wanted by authorities in Acadia Parish for an alleged rape and kidnapping was arrested by the Lake Charles Police Department earlier today. 

According to Acadia Parish Sheriff Wayne Melancon, Reginald Robins of N Wilson Street, Church Point was arrested after authorities in Lake Charles received information through Crime Stoppers of Robins whereabouts.

Robins was arrested without incident and will be transported back to Acadia Parish where he will be placed in the Acadia Parish Jail charged with Simple Kidnapping and Rape.

According to Melancon, Robins was allegedly driving a pick-up truck in the city of Church Point Friday when he stopped at a red light on Martin Luther King Drive and drug the 28 year old victim out of her motor vehicle and into the truck he was driving. 

Melancon stated that Robins then drove to a rural area north of Church Point where he beat and raped the victim. The victim was then left at the scene where a passing motorist rendered assistance and transported her to the Church Point Department. Acadian Ambulance then transported the victim to the Acadia-St. Landry Hospital in Church Point where she was treated and released.

    Tonight, it should be another nice, yet warm evening. Any clouds we see today will clear away around sunset, and the rain chances go back to zero tonight. The temperatures will be fairly warm. They should not cool out of the 70s in most places. Especially near the coastline. North of I-10 has a chance to too the upper 60s, but it will still be warm. This will start off with more hot and humid conditions. There will likely be plenty of clouds every now and then.
