Grand jury indicts man accused of raping woman on Terrytown street; sanity hearing scheduled

A Harvey man accused of sexually assaulting a woman on a Terrytown street has been indicted on a charge of first-degree rape.

If convicted, Celius Gray, 28, faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the benefit probation, parole or suspension of sentence.

No arraignment date has been set. But Gray is scheduled to return to court in Jefferson Parish Friday for a sanity hearing where officials will determine whether he is mentally competent enough to stand trial, records show.
Gray is accused of attacking the victim, a 60-year-old woman, while she was walking in the 1600 block of Carol Sue Avenue in Terrytown on the afternoon of Oct. 15, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office said. After passing her on the sidewalk, he allegedly lifted the woman's skirt, knocked her to the ground and began raping her by the roadside.

Two good Samaritans who saw the attack and pulled the attacker off the woman. Gray fled but was taken into custody by deputies after a chase, the Sheriff's Office said.

Gray told investigators the victim "wanted him." But he also said she resisted by screaming, pulling his hair and pushing him, according to authorities.
The Jefferson Parish District Attorney's Office asked the court to appoint a sanity commission to examine Gray's mental capacity based on information provided by the lead detective, according to court records. Authorities did not detail what prompted the concern about Gray's competency.
