Pasco man arrested in 1992 Lousiana rape case


Man arrested in 1992 Louisiana rape case

A man was arrested Monday on a Louisiana governor's warrant in a rape case from almost 20 years ago.

The two-page warrant says Otis Fitzgerald Hawkins, now 45, abducted a woman on May 10, 1992, and repeatedly raped her at gunpoint before releasing her. The warrant says at some point, the "fugitive from justice" fled to Pasco. The warrant calls for him to be extradited back to his home state.

Hawkins, of 37955 Hillside Lane, was arrested Monday. He is being held without bail in the Land O'Lakes jail until he is sent back to Louisiana.
