A 28-year-old Westlake man has been arrested on four counts of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Michael Paul Abshire was arrested Monday.

"On April 21, deputies were dispatched regarding the return of the girl who was reported as a run-away the night before," Myers said Tuesday in a news release. "Deputies spoke with Abshire, an acquaintance of the girl, who advised he took the girl into his home and had sexual contact with the victim during the night she was reported as a runaway."

Myers said Abshire also admitted to having sex with the girl four times over the past two months.

He was released Monday night after posting a $30,000 bond.
