BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A Baton Rouge man was arrested for allegedly inappropriately touching his biological daughter.
According to the arrest report, the incident occurred on the child’s 10th birthday. The girl told investigators she was visiting her father’s house when he asked her to go to the backyard with him. He allegedly placed his hands on her private area and asked her if “any boys had touched her there.”
The second incident occurred later the same day. The father allegedly brought his daughter into his bedroom and asked her to lift her shirt so he could see her chest. He then asked her to pull down her pants, but she refused.
The man was arrested and charged with Aggravated Incest. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. His bond was set at $25,000.
The name of the suspect is being withheld to protect the identity of the victim.
