OPELOUSAS, LA (WAFB) - Opelousas Police Department officials say they arrested a man Monday on charges of aggravated rape of a 4-year-old.

Police investigators were called to a local hospital after the little girl told her grandmother that Johnathan Meche, 32, of Opelousas assaulted her several times and that he "hurt her."

Detectives interviewed the child and said the little girl remained "extremely consistent" throughout the entire process.

Investigators later found Meche and he was booked into the OPD Jail for aggravated rape.
