A 17-year-old Texas teenager stands accused of raping a 3-year-old girl on Tuesday at a Baton Rouge home.

Bryon Overton, 3618 Crestworth Court, Houston, was arrested and booked into Parish Prison Tuesday on one count of first-degree rape. He remained in custody Wednesday afternoon; bail has been set at $500,000.

According to a Baton Rouge police report, Overton was caught when a 12-year-old child that was also in the home walked into the bedroom and saw what was happening.

Overton told the 12-year-old that “she won’t remember it,” according to the report.

After being placed under arrest by police, Overton confessed to raping the girl, police said.
