Baton Rouge man accused of raping, abusing 20-year-old granddaughter
BATON ROUGE, LA (FOX44) — A 68-year-old man from Baton Rouge was arrested after he allegedly raped his 20-year-old granddaughter.
According to the Baton Rouge Police Department, the incident happened on Saturday, Sept. 7. The victim claims her grandfather grabbed her by the throat, ripped her clothes off and raped her.

The man was arrested and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. He is charged with Aggravated Rape. His bond was set at $150,000.
