Police say they have arrested a man who repeatedly raped a little girl.
"Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office detectives arrested a Houma man in connection with a sexual offense against a juvenile," Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said in a news release. "TPSO received a complaint from a local hospital in reference to a 9 year old female who was brought there by her mother in reference to possibly being molested."
The release says that detectives questioned the girl and learned that she had been raped on multiple occasions by an adult male friend of the family.
"Detectives located the suspect Tuesday afternoon and questioned him," Larpenter says. "He has been identified as Ronny Goubert, 26."
Police say that Goubert admitted to having "sexual intercourse" with the girl on multiple occasions. They say he would sneak into the home.
Goubert is behind bars on and charged with aggravated rape.
