A Central man is accused of sexually assaulting a young girl on numerous occasions beginning approximately eight years ago.

East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s detectives booked Vaenyawn Ghoram, 39, into Parish Prison on Wednesday on a count of molestation of a juvenile.

The victim, now 15, told detectives that Ghoram repeatedly touched her inappropriately beginning when she was between 7 and 8, according to an arrest warrant.

Some of the attacks happened while the victim was staying with her younger sister at Ghoram’s home at 8923 Hickock Drive, the warrant says.

The victim told her mother about the encounters during a recent conversation about the appropriate age to begin dating, authorities said.

A judge set Ghoram’s bail at $15,000, booking records show.
