LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A man convicted of oral sexual battery in 2005 has been arrested for allegedly raping a 10-year-old.

Randy R. Gallow, 42, of Lake Charles, was arrested Monday on counts of first-degree rape and indecent behavior with a juvenile. Judge Guy Bradberry set bond at $750,000.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office began investigating in December after receiving complaints about his behavior around a 10-year-old girl and an 8-year-old girl, according to information from Kim Myers, Sheriff’s Office spokesperson.

Myers said the investigation found that Gallow had sexual contact with the 10-year-old girl and showed sexual images on his cell phone to both girls while they were visiting his home in May 2018.

Gallow was convicted of oral sexual battery in 2005 in Baton Rouge.

Det. Shelly Trahan is the lead investigator.
