BATON ROUGE - Police said they arrested a man from Baker accused of engaging in sexual acts with a juvenile after the 11-year-old victim came forward on Tuesday.

An arrest warrant for Edward Hackett, 31, was issued the same day after detectives interviewed the girl who said the man sexually assaulted her on several occassions, including incidents where he tied her up and forced her to watch pornography. The victim said the pattern of assault began when she was 7 years old.

Hackett was arrested and booked on three counts of aggravated rape along with other felony charges related to sex with a juvenile.
