Man accused of raping 8-year-old girl
BATON ROUGE - Sheriff’s deputies reported the arrest of a man accused of raping an 8-year-old girl numerous times in recent months.
29-year-old Anthony Tipton was arrested Tuesday and booked on charges of first degree aggravated rape.
Detectives said the victim told them during a forensic interview on Tuesday that at around 1 p.m. that day Tipton forced her to perform oral sex on him. She said he had been forcing her to perform various sex acts since she turned eight in October of last year.
The victim told detectives that when she was left alone with the man, he would approach her and request to “snuggle” before forcing her to perform sexual activities, according to the EBRSO arrest report.
Tipton was brought in for questioning at the EBRSO Detective Office on Jimmy Wedell Drive on Tuesday before he was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
