Deputies book man on sex crime counts

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office arrested a man Sunday accused of raping two sisters when they were children and threatening to kill them if they saw other males, an arrest document says.

Jose Antonio Flores, 42, 2128 General Jackson Ave., was booked into Parish Prison on counts of aggravated rape and sex crimes against children, prison records show.

One of the victims, who is 19 now, told a deputy that Flores began abusing her when she was 7, and that Flores is the father of her 9-month-old baby, Flores' arrest document says.

The other victim, who is 20, said that Flores abused her from the time she was 11 until she was 15, the document says.

The women said that Flores "threatened to kill them if he caught them in a relationship with another male," the document says.

Flores remained in Parish Prison as of Sunday evening, prison officials said. His bail had not been set.
