Three brothers are accused of forcing their way into a bathroom and raping a 10-year-old girl who had locked herself inside to hide from them, Kenner police said Monday. 

Two of the suspects, Raul and Wilmer Paz Perez, both 35, were arrested Saturday and booked with first-degree rape of a victim under the age of 13, said Lt. Michael Cunningham, spokesman for the Kenner Police Department. 



$700,000 bond set for Gretna man accused of raping 10-year-old girl

Authorities have arrested a Gretna man who is accused of raping and inappropriately touching a young girl over the course of four years. 

Investigators are searching for a third sibling, Elder Paz Perez, 31, on the same charge. 

The brothers are friends of the victim’s family, according to authorities. 

The three were alone with the girl in a Kenner house on Sept. 9 when they began making sexual advances towards her, authorities said. The brothers offered the girl money, but she refused and locked herself in the bathroom, according to Cunningham. 

The trio used something, possibly a butter knife, to unlock the door. The men then raped the girl, authorities said. 

One of the girl’s relatives contacted police Saturday after she revealed the rape. 

After their arrests, Raul and Wilmer Paz Perez gave conflicting statements about what they were doing at the time of the rape, Cunningham said. 

As officers continue to look for Elder Paz Perez, detectives are investigating a second rape allegation against him involving another victim, according to Cunningham. 

Raul and Wilmer Paz Perez were being held without bond Monday at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna. 

Anyone having any information on the whereabouts Elder Paz-Perez are asked to contact the Kenner Police at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
