Man accused of raping, assaulting girl
BATON ROUGE - Police arrested a Baton Rouge man after they said he raped and sexually assaulted a young girl several times over the past four years.
Police booked Deon Bradford, 42, into the parish jail Wednesday on multiple charges of aggravated rape, sexual battery, and contempt of court.
Detectives said the teen victim told them Bradford first raped her when she was 12, then raped or assaulted her twice more in the years that followed. The teen also told police her 12-year-old sister told her Bradford also touched her inappropriately.
The teen said Bradford threatened to "whip" her if she told anyone about the rapes.
