The Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Department says their deputies are investigating a report of a man approaching a child in her own back yard and sexually soliciting her. Investigators say it happened earlier in the week in the Ragley area, which is about 20 miles south of DeRidder.

According to officials, the child told deputies that she was swimming in the family’s pool when a Hispanic or Indian man came into the back yard and offered her $50.00.

The girl said that she told the man that she was going in the house to get her dad, and the suspect fled.

Deputies say the girl described the man as being about 50 years of age with a dark complexion, bald, and a gray mustache.
