HAMMOND, LA (WVUE) - A teenager is under arrest for allegedly raping a 12-year-old girl, an act he says was consensual.

Covington police said that 18-year-old Milton Lamont Morrow was arrested for the aggravated rape of a 12-year-old girl.

On April 27 police received a complaint that an 18-year-old was having consensual sex with a 12-year-old, but according to law anyone under the age of 13 can not consent to sexual intercourse. Investigators later identified the 18-year-old as Morrow.

Morrow was arrested on May 1 without incident and is currently awaiting arraignment in the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
