Larose man arrested for aggravated rape of a juvenile in the mid-1980s

A Larose man was arrested for the aggravated rape of a juvenile, which occurred around 30 years ago. Warren Danos, 81, was arrested last week and was released after posting bond.

Juvenile detectives were contacted by a woman stating she was victimized by Danos approximately 30 years ago. Through investigation, detectives learned Danos allegedly had sexual contact with the victim over the course of approximately two years, from 1984 to 1986. The victim was less than 10 years of age at the time.

Following an investigation into the matter, detectives obtained a warrant for Danos' arrest.

On Wednesday, July 22, detectives made contact with Danos who refused to provide a statement relative to the allegations. He was placed under arrest and booked with aggravated rape. He was subsequently released after posting $5,000 bond as set by Judge John LeBlanc.

Due to the nature of the allegations and the age of the victim at the time of the alleged incident, no further details will be made available at this time.
