BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A Baton Rouge man has been arrested and accused of raping a woman he met on a social media app called Tinder.

On Saturday, July 26, a woman called police to report that she had been raped by a man named Jake that she met on Tinder. The woman told police after they met on Tinder, they agreed to meet in person at her apartment. 

When 22-year-old Jacob Hirsch Witz arrived, they sat on the couch and talked a while and moved to the bedroom to talk. The woman's statement to police says Witz became suddenly aggressive and pulled her shorts off. She goes on to say that he slapped her across the face, ripped off her shirt and bra and raped her as she begged him to stop.

The police report says Witz then found the woman's phone and forced her to unlock it so he could delete all text messages between them. He then forced her to take a bath while he watched. The woman told police Witz said "Pretend this did not happen. Don't tell anybody. I did not rape you, I got to get out of here."

The woman told police "Jake" is a massage therapist and weight trainer who drives a silver Camero.

Police found Witz and before they could read him his Miranda Rights, he told them he was not answering any questions and wanted an attorney.

Witz was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of forcible rape. He is being held on a $35,000 bond.
