A Shreveport man faces charges in the alleged rape of a boy under age 10.

An ongoing investigation into sexual assault allegations has led to the arrest of 53-year-old Edward Keith Johnson. Sex Crimes Unit investigators launched their investigation back in March, after a police report was filed suggesting Johnson had repeatedly sexually assaulted a young boy he knew. Details indicate the alleged assaults may have also happened at locations in Bossier City.

Working with BCPD detectives, authorities were able to secure evidence linking Johnson to the allegations. A second juvenile victim also came forward, accusing Johnson of inappropriate sexual misconduct.

Johnson is charged with one count of aggravated rape. Detectives have reason to believe Johnson may have been involved in other such incidents and urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
