Caddo Sheriff’s detectives have arrested a man for the rape of a young girl in the 1970s, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.

Roy Leon Robertson, 74, of Montgomery, LA, was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on Monday charged with aggravated rape.

Robertson is accused of raping a female under the age of 13 in the 400 block of Tyre Road in Shreveport. The offense occurred in the 1970s but was not reported to Caddo Sheriff’s deputies until 2014 when Robertson came under investigation for similar offenses in Winn Parish. Sheriff’s Detective Jared Marshall obtained a warrant for Roberston’s arrest after several family members and witnesses involved with the local case were interviewed.

Robertson was extradited to Caddo Parish from Winn Parish, where he was being held in connection with similar charges there.
