LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested a Westlake man on Wednesday for 1st-degree rape and contributing to the delinquency of juveniles.

According to CPSO spokesperson Kayla Vincent, detectives received a complaint on January 19, in reference to Brandon J. Savoy, 26, of Westlake, having inappropriate sexual contact with a child under the age of 13.

During the investigation the victim advised detectives the incident occurred at Savoy’s residence. It was also learned Savoy, who was babysitting the victim along with two other children, also under the ages of 13, provided them with marijuana and allowed them to smoke, according to Vincent.
