LAROSE, LA (WAFB) - A Larose man has been arrested for the aggravated rape of a juvenile which occurred around 30 years ago, according to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say 81-year-old Warren Danos was arrested last week and was released after posting bond.

Juvenile detectives were contacted by a woman stating she was victimized by Danos approximately 30 years ago. Through investigation, detectives learned Danos allegedly had sexual contact with the victim over the course of approximately two years, from 1984 to 1986. The victim was less than 10 years old at the time. Following an investigation into the matter, detectives obtained a warrant for Danos' arrest.

On Wednesday, July 22, detectives made contact with Danos who refused to provide a statement relative to the allegations. He was placed under arrest and booked with aggravated rape. He was subsequently released after posting $5,000 bond as set by Judge John Leblanc.
