A Baton Rouge man wanted for the aggravated rape of an 11-year-old girl is now behind bars.

Anthony Dreon Allen, 18, was wanted by the Baker Police Department as a suspect in the aggravated rape of an 11-year-old girl.

Allen was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

If convicted as charged, Allen faces life in prison without the benefit of parole.

In 2008, Attorney General Caldwell established the Fugitive Apprehension Unit—a program created to assist local law enforcement agencies in locating and apprehending fugitives. To date, more than 700 fugitives have been captured as a result of Caldwell's initiative.
