A Lake Charles man is wanted in the rape of a 14-year-old girl in 2012 that occurred while she was visiting her father at his Baton Rouge home.

She recently told a relative about the incident, and police were able to get enough information to obtain a warrant, said Cpl. Don A. Coppola Jr., Baton Rouge Police Department spokesman.

The victim was visiting her father in October when he left her with Ernest Dixon, 59, who took the girl to a store and bought her a “cold drink.”

When they returned to the house, the victim went to her father’s bedroom alone. Shortly after, Dixon came in and raped her despite her resistance, the report says. The victim said she “blanked out” during the rape.

She first disclosed that she was raped by writing a note to her bus driver Oct. 25, 2012, the report says, but after a meeting with school officials and the child’s mother, the child withdrew the allegations, Coppola said. Later, she told a relative about the incident, though, and police were able to obtain a warrant.

Dixon, of 2010 2nd St., Lake Charles, is wanted on a count of aggravated rape, the report says.
