(KPEL) -- An Opelousas man is in jail after allegedly raping a woman early Saturday morning.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says deputies were dispatched to Opelousas General Hospital in connection with a possible rape.

The victim says at 3 a.m. Saturday, she was walking alone when a man chased her and forced her inside his truck. She says he took her outside the city limits before forcing her to have sex with him. She was threatened with an axe, she says.

Guidroz says the victim picked 35-year-old Chonquaro Green from a photo lineup. He was arrested by police on an unrelated charge, and after an investigation, he was formally charged with one count of aggravated rape.
