Tae Provens was accused of raping a woman in Louisiana on Sunday morning
A Louisiana State University football player has been accused of raping a ‘blacked out’ woman who asked to use his bathroom on the college campus Sunday.
Tae Provens, 19, was arrested and booked on a third-degree rape charge Wednesday, after a few days before the female told police at the Baton Rouge school that he sexually assaulted her around 3am when he gave her permission to use his toilet.
The female claims she and a friend were visiting his apartment at Riverbend Hall and had been there an hour and a half when he followed her into his en-suite bathroom and she began to lose consciousness.
The woman said she had been drinking earlier in the night.
Police said the woman accused Provens – who is 5ft 11in and weighs 185 pounds – of removing her clothing. ‘Next thing she remembers is her shirt coming off and trying to hold on to her underwear as it was being taken off,’ the police statement reads.
The alleged victim claimed the LSU Tigers running back – whose full name is Alfonso Tymaseol Provens – went behind her then began to vaginally rape her when she was face down on a bed so she told him: ‘No, no. no.’
‘She stated this caused Provens to stop temporarily but then he went behind her and attempted to penetrate her again,’ the police report said.
The alleged incident occurred at Louisiana State University’s Riverbend Hall around 3am
