The Plaquemine Police on Saturday arrested George J. Louis of Plaquemine on charges of aggravated rape of an eight-year-old and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, police officials said.

The child’s grandmother, who was babysitting her, was issued a summons for improper supervision of a juvenile, Detective Robert Johnson said. He said she is accused of leaving the child and her much younger brother asleep and alone in her unlocked home, Detective Robert Johnson said.

Johnson alleged that Louis was walking home from a local nightclub around 1 a.m. Saturday when he passed the grandmother’s house and decided to ask her if she wanted to drink some beer.

Louis is accused of entering the unlocked door of the home, going to a bedroom where the eight-year-old girl was sleeping with her baby brother, pinning her down on the bed and sexually assaulting her with his hands, the detective said.

When the grandmother returned home, the child told her what had happened, Johnson said. He said  police picked Louis up at his home, at 58606 Jetson Avenue, about 30 minutes later.

Johnson said the girl was sent to River West Medical Center for evaluation, and that she has been referred to a social worker who can arrange for further physical and psychological evaluation.

As of Monday, Louis remained in the Iberville Parish Jail, records showed. Bond information was not immediately available.
