The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office arrests a 26-year-old man who allegedly locked up a convenience store clerk in Sulphur and raped her in a storage room. Spokesperson Kim Myers says James Domingue of Sulphur entered the business and locked the door unbeknownst to the clerk, then lured her to the back of the store pretending to search for an item.
"When she went to the back of the store he grabbed her by the hair and drug her into a storage room and forced her to preform oral sex on him and then struck her several times in the face."
Myers says the woman tried to resist bit was unable to get away, then Domingue knocked her to the ground and raped her. She says Domingue made the clerk give him goods from the store and then let himself out.
"She called 911 and when the detectives got there, they took some pictures of the surveillance video and were able to show the pictures around and James Domingue was identified."
Myers says Domingue was arrested on charges of rape, kidnapping and false imprisonment. She says this seems to be a random act from Domingue, who has a criminal background.
"He is a previously convicted sex offender. He was convicted of rape in August of 2011."
