Shreveport Police Looking for Accused Child Rapist
On April 11th, 2023, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Claude Capers (01/9/97). Capers has been accused of sexually abusing a 5-year-old victim. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Capers for one count of 1st-degree rape.
First-degree rape is a rape committed upon a person sixty-five years of age or older or where the anal, oral, or vaginal sexual intercourse is deemed to be without lawful consent of the victim because it is committed under any one or more of the following circumstances:
(1) When the victim resists the act to the utmost, but whose resistance is overcome by force. (2) When the victim is prevented from resisting the act by threats of great and immediate bodily harm, accompanied by apparent power of execution. (3) When the victim is prevented from resisting the act because the offender is armed with a dangerous weapon. (4) When the victim is under the age of thirteen years. Lack of knowledge of the victim's age shall not be a defense. (5) When two or more offenders participated in the act. (6) When the victim is prevented from resisting the act because the victim is a person with a disability.
