ROSEPINE, LA (KPLC) -

An 18-year-old Slagle man has been charged with aggravated rape and oral sexual battery, authorities said.

Vernon Parish Sheriff Sam Craft said Michael Anthony Maddox was arrested Sunday. Bond was set at $200,000.

Craft said the investigation began Friday when his office received reports of a 12-year-old female runaway.

"The Rosepine Police Department and our office located the missing juvenile and three suspects at a residence in the Rosepine area," Craft said Monday in a news release.

Maddox was arrested along with 17-year-old Leah Nicole Yancey and 18-year-old Skyler Wayne Van Patten, both of Rosepine.

Yancey was charged with marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was released after posting a $2,000 bond.

Van Patten was charged with marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. He remains in custody on a $3,000 bond.

Maddox was originally only charged with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

"Detectives were contacted and through further investigation it was learned that Maddox engaged in sexual contact with the 12-year-old female on two occasions," Craft said.

Craft said the juvenile female has been charged with one count of ungovernable and one count of runway. She has been remanded to the custody of her parents.
