Roderick Taylor Jr., 18, from Harker Heights, Texas, allegedly met the complainant on a social media site.

According to Steven Mahon, UPD officer in charge, the pair travelled to lot 35, an overflow parking lot across from Hemphill Hall, where the incident allegedly occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Taylor was booked in the Ouachita Correctional Center where bond was set at $20,000.

ULM athletic director Brian Wickstrom said that Taylor has been suspended indefinitely.

Wickstrom had no further details.

“Our campus has a good system in place and all areas work well together. The case needs to work through the legal system,” Wickstrom said.
