CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A Vinton man is accused of rape and sexual battery, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said on April 7, deputies were dispatched to Vinton regarding a report of rape.

Authorities said the victim told deputies that 48-year-old Glenn P. Baxter II, a registered sex offender, entered her home and raped her.

"Deputies also discovered Baxter sexually assaulted another acquaintance on several occasions over the past four months," the release states.

Baxter was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with forcible rape and sexual battery.

Judge Clayton Davis set his bond at $550,000.

"Baxter was previously arrested and charged with one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile in September 2012, after he confirmed he had inappropriate sexual contact with a 10-year-old juvenile," the release states.

Baxter was convicted of sexual battery in Calcasieu Parish in December 1998, according to authorities.

CPSO Detective Cinnamon Salvador is the lead investigator on the case.
