A 57-year-old Breaux Bridge man is accused of raping a child.

Investigators with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office initiated an investigation following a report of alleged inappropriate sexual acts being committed on a male juvenile, according to Major Ginny Higgins, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office. Following an investigation into the allegations, a warrant of arrest was obtained for Peters.

This afternoon, investigators with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office executed the warrant, and Mark Peters who is currently incarcerated at the St. Martin Parish Jail on an unrelated charge, was booked in on charges of first-degree rape and sexual battery.

No bond has been set at this time.
