Shreveporter arrested for rape at a Bossier Parish home


A Shreveport man was arrested late Friday on multiple counts of rape.

Gerald G. Mitchell, 34, of the 300 block of Carrollton St. in Shreveport, was arrested just after 9 p.m. on Sept. 20 by a Bossier Sheriff’s Office patrol deputy on active warrant charges of four counts of first degree rape.  

Mitchell is charged with raping a female juvenile victim using force and threats of violence at a Bossier Parish residence on four separate occasions earlier this year during a one-month period.

Mitchell was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking, where he faces a $1,000,000 bond.  

Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives are continuing their investigation.
