A 21-year-old Dry Creek man has been charged with aggravated rape, second-degree battery, battery of a police officer, resisting arrest and home invasion, authorities said.

Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Joe Toler said Christopher L. Bounds was arrested Sunday.

“We received a report very early Sunday morning of a man found in the bedroom with an 8-year-old female,” Toler said in a news release. “Detectives learned that upon discovery the man struck the mother of the child in the face and then fled the residence.”

Toler said Bounds kicked and attempted to bite one of the deputies executing a search warrant for DNA samples.

The Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office also reported the following arrests:

• Willie D. Campbell, 30, DeRidder: trespassing, two counts of drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Wendy Maddox, 38, DeRidder: second-offense DWI.

Title: Who is to Blame-- or is it just our realityWe have to hold himm

We cannot blame anyone for this tragic incident. Accountability belongs to the perpetrator. Perpetrators must be given accountability, not understanding. Now, I understand the reasons behind a fair trial and research oriented assessments. But as citizens, as parents, as law enforcement and as public servants, we do a fantastic job of getting the message out that sex criimes will not be tolerate. Children are to feel safe and happy in Calcasieu Parish. I have confidence in that. Money is tight and patience wears thin, sure. There are no effective treatment programs for pedophiles, perpetrators, etc. Do your research. 357 is quicker than 911-- and in most cases far more effective for the greater good of our community. The safety and well-being of our community is what we work for, what we pay taxes for, and what we must be mindful of. Poor mother : I certainly hope the public doesn't prosecute her socially-- most non offending parents are blamed, denied service, and weakly supported at best. INSTITUTIONAL VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE AT GLOBAL EPIDEMIC PROPORTIONS. GET EDUCATED. KNOW WHERE YOU STAND so you don't fall for anything.

I don't want to taint the prospective juy pool on this crime but this young man has ad multiple run-ins with the local sherrif's department. this little girl and her family will hve to relive tht day over an over again in the future and it needn't have happened if our prisons and local lock-ups were'already over-populated with otherswith the same criminal mindset. He is already familiar with the operating procedures and I am sure he wll be advised to plead out his charges for a leser crime just to keep it out of a jury's hands. tell the family about why he'll be able to get parole after serving 15 years for multiple felonies just to save the state a little money. It's a heart-wrenching reality. The child coud actually see this man out f prison before she graduates highschool. I hope we learn something from our judicial system cause the liberal secularists want 13 years to become the age o consent. Don' punish the criminal, just change the laws to make cimes legal. What a crying shame to watch our natin crumbling before our own eyes.
