Rapist Accused of Striking Again

November 4, 1999

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ A man who served six years behind bars for raping a woman returned to her house, raped her again and tried to stab her, shouting, ``I’m going to kill you for putting me in jail!″ police said.

Louis Brooks, 40, was jailed on charges of attempted murder, armed sexual battery and armed burglary.

Brooks got out of prison in July. He was released early from a 15-year sentence because of prison overcrowding.

The attack occurred Sunday night. Police said Brooks forced his way into the 75-year-old victim’s house with a butcher knife.

He took her wallet, some jewelry and her house and car keys and told her not to move or he would come back and kill her, police said.
