MONROE, La. (KNOE) - A Monroe man is charged with rape after investigators say he took advantage of a three-year-old girl.

In addition to being charged with first-degree rape, Levon Jennings is also charged with oral sexual battery. Court records indicate the three-year-old told her mother that Jennings did something "ugly" to her while the girl's mother was away from the home for about one hour. Investigators say the girl described being inappropriately touched on several areas of her body by the 25-year-old man.

Bond for Jennings is set at $600,000.
