An Indiana man found himself in a county lockup after he allegedly tried raping a woman whom he claimed was his "baby-momma" and then supposedly tried to solicit sex from a female cop. 

Parris Boyd, 22, was allegedly inside an Evansville, Indiana apartment complex on Friday evening when he interrupted a woman’s mobile phone conversation with her grandmother, according to a probable cause affidavit first reported by The Evansville Courier & Press.

As the woman was walking and talking downstairs through the building’s third-floor corridor, she claimed she was quickly distracted by Boyd’s aggressive overtures. 

"You got a man?" he allegedly crowed. 

The woman told cops that she refused to engage with Boyd, shutting him down by explaining that she was speaking to her grandmother. The woman then spent some time in a friend’s apartment. 

When she left, the rejected Boyd allegedly reappeared. 

Again, the woman was on the phone with her grandmother.

She told cops in the probable cause affidavit that Boyd skipped any further flirtations, and allegedly attempted to wrestle her from behind and yank her shorts off of her while covering her mouth. 

Luckily, the woman managed to remain on the phone with her grandmother and supplied her with a detailed description of the alleged brute, the report states. 

Boyd relented after a passerby caught him in the act, according to the report. 

When officers arrived minutes later to handcuff Boyd, he allegedly slipped away and then made a pass at a female officer for sex, the report adds, also alleging he tried to plant a kiss on her.

Boyd reportedly claimed that the woman he allegedly pursued was his "baby-momma;" however, he couldn't recall her name or any of the kids that he was supposed to have conceived with her. 

He was subsequently charged with attempted rape, criminal confinement, and resisting law enforcement, court records show. A bond hearing has been set for Tuesday where Boyd could get released if he posts $10,000 cash. If Boyd manages to get released, he is forbidden to have any contact with the alleged victim.
