CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A Shreveport man already behind bars in DeSoto Parish charged with molestation of a juvenile is now facing more charges in Caddo Parish.

The Caddo Sheriff's Office has a warrant for the arrest of 53-year-old Loyd Karl Hastings, charged with rape and sexual battery involving juveniles.

Hastings' arrest came after a 14-year old girl told deputies that he had acted inappropriately with her. An investigation led to additional charges of illegal activity that occurred in Caddo Parish, where Hastings lives. His home address is listed as being in the 8100 block of Treyway.

Deputies say another investigation by Caddo Detective James Moore resulted in arrest warrants for Hastings on two counts of sexual battery and one count of aggravated rape. The total bond on the three charges has been set at $100,000.

The cases involve three separate victims, all of whom police say were juveniles at the time of the offenses. In two of the cases the abuse occurred when the victims were as young as six. One case – the aggravated rape – dates back 30 years, Moore said.

Hastings will be transferred to Caddo Parish and officially charged with the offenses once his charge in DeSoto Parish is resolved.

In the meantime, Detective Moore is asking anyone who has information that will assist in the investigation to contact him at 675-2170.
