BAKER, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge man has been arrested Sunday afternoon after he allegedly raped an 11-year-old girl in Baker, La.
Officials say the girl's family hired 18-year-old Laderick McClain of Appleton Street to fix a shelf in the house. Family members told investigators that McClain was supposed to come into the house, fix the shelf, and then leave.
The 11-year-old says she fell asleep in her room before McClain left and woke up to find him on top of her in her bed.
According to the probable cause report, McClain allegedly admitted to detectives that he did come into contact with the victim, and he allegedly was aware that the victim was underage.
Officials arrested McCain at his residence and booked into the EBR Parish Prison.
