52-year-old man arrested in rape of granddaughters

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Authorities say a 52-year-old Wisconsin man has been charged with raping his two granddaughters while staying in a New Orleans hotel in May.

The Times-Picayune says the man was arrested July 4 and booked on two counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated incest of his 5- and 10-year-old granddaughters.

The Associated Press is not identifying the suspect to protect the identities of the children.

According to court documents, the two girls told police that their "Granddad" raped them in a room at the Capri Motel.

Arrest reports indicate the suspect is a resident of Milwaukee, Wis.
