St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s deputies have arrested an Opelousas woman in connection with the rape of a child.
Arnesha John Louis, 21, was booked with second-degree rape.
The investigation began on April 18 when the child’s mother reported to deputies that her son had been raped.
Detectives interviewed the juvenile who said he was forced to have sexual intercourse with a female known by the family. After horse playing, Louis allegedly pulled off his pants and got on top of him and began to have sex with him. The juvenile was able to give detectives key evidence of the rape which led the detectives to interview Louis.
Louis was interviewed at the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office. She allegedly admitted to having sexual intercourse with the juvenile and stated “it was only an accident," deputies said. Louis was then booked into the parish jail.
“The rape occurred while Louis was visiting the family. Parents should always talk to their kids and always have a watchful eye on anyone who is around their children," Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said.
