SCOTT, LA (WAFB) -

A Scott, LA man has been arrested and charged with aggravated rape of a 10-year-old girl. 

On May, 25, 2014, the child was brought to the hospital by her mother after she complained that her stomach was hurting. Reports say the 10-year-old victim was examined by a sexual assault nurse and a sexual assault kit was obtained.

Results from the sexual assault kit were obtained on Nov. 5, 2014, and reports say investigators had probable cause to arrest 35-year-old Michael Jason Burks. 

Burks was found at his home on Nov. 6, 2014 and was arrested. He was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center and is being held on a $500,000 bond.
