Louisiana man charged with Aggravated Rape, Aggravated Incest

LOUISIANA - From Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office received two complaints regarding Robert Lee Sargent, Sr., 56, Lake Charles, having inappropriate sexual contact with two girls.

During the investigation it was learned that one of the victims was Sargent’s family member, whom he sexually assaulted approximately 28 years ago, from the age of 2 until she was 11.  Through this investigation it was also learned that Sargent had inappropriate sexual contact on several occasions with a child who lived in the neighborhood starting in 2010 when she was 6 years old and lasting until January 2015.  All of the incidents occurred at Sargent’s house.

Sargent was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 1 count of aggravated rape; 5 counts of sexual battery; and 4 counts of aggravated incest.  A new LA law has changed the crime of incest to crime against nature, but Sargent was charged under the old law because the unlawful occurrences happened prior to the new law becoming effective.

Judge Robert Wyatt set his bond at $450,000.  

CPSO Detective Cinnamon Salvador is lead investigator in the case.

WASHINGTON (WJLA/AP) – A lockdown is underway on the entire Washington Navy Yard campus after a report of shots fired early Thursday morning.

An official spokesperson for the Navy Yard said police are investigating a "potential incident" on the Navy Yard campus, but did not confirm whether a shooting occurred.

Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier tells ABC 7 that there is "no evidence of guns or a shooting" at the Navy Yard, which is currently on lockdown.

Navy security saw surveillance video of two people jumping the fence in the vicinity of the building a couple of minutes before the first report of gunfire, a federal official tells the Associated Press.

ABC 7's Sam Sweeney confirms that Metropolitan Police have moved their search to a building in the 300 block of M Street as of 9:30 a.m. Police have pushed crowds back to clear a two-block radius away from the building.

Sources tell ABC 7 On Your Side reporter Jennifer Donelan that there was an initial report to the police for the "sounds of gunshots"in Building 197, the same building where a gunman killed a dozen workers in a rampage two years ago.

Donelan reports that so far, there are no reports of injuries nor has a shooter been identified.

Lt. Commander Scott Williams, who was inside during the incident, described the scene to reporters as "scary and confusing" and said people were screaming and running around while attempting to leave.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said on Twitter early Thursday that she is monitoring reports about the shooting and plans to provide updates as they come in.

In D.C., 11th St from M St to Virginia Ave/ Traffic is flowing North & South on 11th St/no traffic onto M St SE.are closed due to the large police response.

Metro Transit Police confirm Metro is not affected at this time.

In September 2013, military contractor Aaron Alexis killed 12 civilian workers at the Navy Yard's Building 197 before he was fatally shot by police. The building has since been renamed the Humphreys Building. It reopened this year.

The Navy Yard, in southeast Washington, is the country's oldest naval installation.
