A man was arrested after a 6-year-old girl said that she was his girlfriend.

23-year-old Reginald Augustus of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was arrested after a young child told her mother that Augustus slept in her bed.

The mother of the victim was talking to someone about Augustus. The victim’s mother said that Augustus “never had a girlfriend.”

That is when the 6-year-old girl, who overheard the conversation, told her mother that Augustus does have a girlfriend.

“I am his girlfriend,” the 6 year old said. The mother asked the girl if Augustus had ever touched her and the girl replied that he did.

The girl told her mother that the suspect had touched her “between her legs when she wore pajamas.”

A 10-year-old girl then told her mother that Augustus “sleeps with her under the same blanket, and he touched her as well,” police said.

The 10-year-old girl later told a detective that Augustus once touched her inside her pajama bottoms and on top of her underwear, according to the report.

The 10-year-old girl said that she told Augustus to stop, and he did, but she never told anyone because she didn’t want to get him in trouble, police said.

Augustus is being held in the county jail and his bail was set at $25,000.
