MARRERO (AP) — Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies say an 83-year-old woman was raped in her Marrero home after she interrupted a burglary.

Deputies arrested a suspect, 51-year-old Kenneth Adams, and booked him with aggravated rape, aggravated burglary, simple robbery, resisting an officer, battery on a police officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and illegal possession of stolen property.

Col. John Fortunato tells The Times-Picayune the rape was reported shortly before 5 p.m. Sunday.

Fortunato says the suspect fled when the woman told him authorities were on their way.

After a foot pursuit and struggle with deputies, Adams was arrested. Fortunato says authorities found the victim's property in Adams' possession.

It was unclear whether Adams has an attorney.
