Cops: Man living in the woods rapes child in Thibodaux

Thibodaux police say they have arrested a homeless man who allegedly raped a child on two occasions, one of them happened in the woods.

Police spokesman David Melancon says 49-year-old Brian Stickel was friendly towards the victim's family and last week he took the pre-teen child hunting.

"Friday afternoon, June 28th, around 7:00 p.m. Brian took the victim in the woods near the victim's home promising to shoot a bow and arrow." Melancon said in a news release.  "While in the woods, Brian had sexual contact with the victim. Brian, who had given the victim money, also had sexual contact with the victim several weeks earlier in the victim's home."

Melancon says after the second incident, the child told his parents.
Stickel has been charged with two counts of aggravated rape. He's in the LaFourche Parish Detention Center on a $300,000 bond.
