A Baton Rouge man was arrested Tuesday in the sexual assault of a girl who was 15 at the time of the incident four years ago, the Baton Rouge Police Department reported.

Bruce Tims, 48, is accused of going into the girl’s bedroom while she was asleep and inappropriately touching her in July 2010, according to the warrant for his arrest. Tims left the room after the girl told him to stop, the warrant says.

The Baton Rouge police learned of the assault from detectives from another city who had interviewed the victim, the warrant says.

Tims, 180 Chatsworth Drive, Baton Rouge, was booked into Parish Prison on one count of felony sexual battery. He remains in jail in lieu of $10,000 bail, according to online booking records.
