Baton Rouge police Thursday arrested an 18-year-old man who is accused of fleeing a bedroom in mid-July after a teenage girl’s mother walked in on them apparently about to engage in sexual activity.
Police booked Julian K. Dyson, 5650 Sumrall Drive, Baton Rouge, into Parish Prison on counts of indecent behavior with juveniles, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
On the night of July 14, the mother of the victim, who is 14, walked into the girl’s bedroom and found the victim partially disrobed, lying on her bed, with Dyson sitting next to her, the affidavit says.
The victim’s mother said Dyson then ran away from the house, the affidavit says. The victim told police Dyson had asked her after entering her room if she would have sex with him, to which she replied, ‘No,’ the affidavit says.

Brandon Ledoux, 12535 W. Erin Drive, Baton Rouge, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of cruelty to juveniles, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
Ledoux is accused of striking the child outside a hospital on Aug. 5, the affidavit says. The child’s mother told police the bruises weren’t from a spanking, but that the toddler “bruises easily and he fell,” the affidavit says.
The mother added that she allows Ledoux to spank the child because “he provides for them,” the affidavit says. A doctor interview by police stated that the bruises on the child were from physical abuse, the affidavit says.
