COVINGTON, La. -- Covington police have arrested a man they say raped a 12-year-old girl.
According to police, on April 27, they received a call that an 18-year-old man had consensual intercourse with an unidentified 12-year old girl.
Anyone under the age of 13 is not legally able to consent to sexual intercourse, and it is therefore defined as aggravated rape.
An investigation was conducted and Milton Lamont Morrow was identified as the perpetrator.
A warrant of arrest for aggravated rape was obtained for Morrow and he was arrested Thursday evening without incident.
Morrow was booked and transported to the St. Tammany Parish Jail and is currently awaiting arraignment on the charge.
