A Baton Rouge man is accused of raping an 11-year-old girl in 2015, according to a Baton Rouge Police Department report.

Mark Ferguson, 48, was booked  into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison Wednesday on a count of first-degree rape.

The victim's mother told police in April that she learned of the sexual assault after reading text messages her daughter sent to another person, according to the police report.

The incident occurred in May 2015, when the girl was 11 years old.

Bond for Ferguson, 2010 Aubinwood Drive, was set at $100,000.
