Slidell-area man accused of raping stepdaughter

St. Tammany Sheriff's officials today announced the arrest of a Slidell-area man on charges sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl.

Deputies say the girl's mother called the sheriff's office Monday morning to report she had caught her husband in her daughter's bedroom, "masturbating over the girl," according to the news release.  The sheriff's office says the man fled the residence upon deputies arrival.

With the help of the U.S. Marshals Service, authorities tracked the man to Jackson, Mississippi and arrested him there.

Sheriff Jack Strain's office says during follow-up interviews with the victim and her mother, investigators determined that the 13-year-old had suffered multiple incidents of forcible rape.  Other charges may be filed in the case.
