Man accused of raping victim in exchange for money allegedly owed to him

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - A man was arrested after he allegedly raped a victim for not giving him money they apparently owed him, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Orlando Douglas II, 32, was arrested on four counts of rape.

In August 2022, officers with the South Bend Police Department were assigned to investigate an alleged rape where Douglas was the suspect.

According to the victim, Douglas forced the two of them into the victim's residence and demanded money he believed the victim owed him, reports said.

Douglas told the victim he would take sex in exchange for the money, reports said.

When the victim said no, Douglas, while armed with a firearm, told the victim, "you know what to do," according to reports.

The victim was afraid of getting hurt so they performed a sexual act with Douglas, police reports said.

Douglas then raped the victim, according to reports.

Before leaving the victim's residence, Douglas allegedly stole the victim's keyring, which gave him access to the residence.

A search warrant was granted for Douglas's residence and inside, officers found the victim's keys in a backpack that belonged to Douglas, police reported.

Officers also found a firearm they believe Douglas used during the rape.

Two witnesses at the residence confirmed the firearm belonged to Douglas.

One of them said they saw Douglas with the firearm and that Douglas put the firearm where police found it, reports said.

Douglas was previously convicted of possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon.

He is being held on a $75,000 cash bond.

His initial hearing is scheduled for March 29.
