LSU officials say a man has been arrested for allegedly attacking and robbing a man inside a Tiger Stadium bathroom shortly after the game against South Carolina Saturday, Oct. 24.
19-year-old Gary Ramses Walker was arrested on Monday on the charge of second-degree robbery in connection with the incident, according to arrest records.
“Did you beat up and rob that man?” questioned WAFB’s Scottie Hunter.
“I didn’t rob nobody,” said Walker as he was taken into custody.
“They got the wrong guy,” he said.
The victim, Danny Dwyer, walked into the bathroom to use the urinal around 10 p.m and noticed that the only other person in the room was Walker.
“And there was a man who was sweeping the floor and cleaning up,” said Dwyer, an LSU season ticket holder for 25 years.
Authorities say Walker then hit the victim twice on the head when the victim turned his back on Walker to use the urinal. The man fell to the ground and Walker continued to strike him, LSUPD says.
“There were 2 hard blows to the back of my head,” said Dwyer. “And as I was on the floor, the person continued to hit me on the back of the head. And probably rained down 14-15 blows.”
Walker grabbed the victim’s wallet and yelled “stay down mother f*” to the victim before running out of the bathroom, according to arrest records.
Dwyer’s face bleeding profusely as he looked for police.
“And when they saw me, they immediately came to my assistance, they immediately called EMS, they responded immediately, this was all inside the stadium. Took me to their facility in campus, which was inside the stadium, dressed the wounds initially and suggested I go to Our Lady of The Lake Hospital,” said Dwyer, who had three lacerations on his head.”
LSU Police Department say they received two phone calls identifying Walker as the suspect.
Dwyer’s daughter-in-law wrote about the incident on Facebook and adds that all of this was over less than $100.
“My sweet father-in-law (FIL), a long time LSU season ticket holder, loving husband, son, father and grandpa, was attacked from behind and robbed at the urinal while using the LSU stadium bathroom near his section on the lower level of the South End zone with police just outside. He was in the bathroom along with a few other fans once the LSU vs South Carolina game had ended and people were leaving the stadium on October 24, 2020.
The attacker was sweeping the bathroom floor. Once my FIL was the only remaining fan in the bathroom the attacker locked the front entrance to bathroom, hit my FIL over the head several times until he fell to the floor and then continued to beat him. He seemed to get angry that my FIL was still conscious and yelled, “ Stay down Mother F*cker!”. He took my FIL’s wallet that contained possibly $100 or less in cash along with credit cards. The attacker exited out of the back bathroom entrance/exit ( No cameras in this area). My FIL was able to get up and go to Stadium/ campus police that were near to report the attack.”
