Slidell man arrested for rape of step-daughter

Updated:

Slidell, La. - A Slidell man awaits extradition in Mississippi accused of raping his step-daughter in St. Tammany Parish.

U.S. Marshals arrested the man at his brother's home in Jackson, MS early Wednesday morning.

Authorities first became aware of the case Monday when the victim's mother reported her husband performing an alleged sex act in front of her daughter.

The man fled before deputies arrived at the scene.

He faces one count of rape.

A spokesman with the St. Tammany Sheriff's Office says more charges may come pending an investigation.
