SAN MARCOS (KXAN) — Keith Vallens Louis III, 27, has been charged with sexual assault stemming from an April 29 incident at The Edge apartments in San Marcos, according to an arrest warrant filed by the Hays County Sheriff’s Office.

On Thursday, May 2, police got a call from The Edge Apartments, where the caller said they heard a female voice scream about rape. Police say the woman who screamed was Louis’ roommate.

She told them she and Louis had a fight on Monday, April 29, which she said later led him to sexually assault her. Earlier that night at the Edge apartment, the victim told police Louis made sexual advances toward her that were unwanted. The victim went to her room to go to bed around 10:30 p.m. the same night and Louis followed her into the room where the sexual assault occurred, according to the affidavit.

The victim said she hadn’t seen him since that time, until she came home Thursday and saw Louis in the apartment, which caused her to scream.

Louis remains in custody at the Hays County jail.

In a separate series of incidents, police are looking for a suspect accused of sexually assaulting people at nearby apartments in San Marcos. They released a police sketch of that person Friday.
