NEW ORLEANS -- A 67-year-old Washington Parish man is facing rape charges involving a minor.

Deputies booked Walter A. Johnson with one count of aggravated rape of a minor.

To protect the victim's identity, the sheriff's office is not releasing any further details.

'As a parent and grandparent, I am appalled at the thought of any adult committing sexual battery on a child,' said Sheriff Randy Seal. 'Our staff did an excellent job gathering evidence to make an arrest in this matter.'

Johnson is being held in Washington Parish on a $300,000 bond.
