SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Authorities say an 81-year-old Shreveport man has been arrested for the alleged rape of a 6-year-old girl.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says James Edward Dickens is accused of having sexual contact with the juvenile on numerous occasions this year while at his home in Caddo Parish.

Dickens was arrested Tuesday on a charge of first-degree rape. He remained in jail Friday. Bond information and whether he is represented by an attorney who could comment on his behalf was not immediately available.
