BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Police say they have arrested a suspect accused of raping a 9-year-old.

Finnley allegedly fled on foot before police got to his house, but was found hiding under a bed at the house on a follow-up visit a day later.

Finnley was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. No bond has currently been set.
