BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Zachary woman is in custody for the alleged rape two years ago of a 10-year-old boy.

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office says Harlie Vanosdell, now 21, is accused of raping the child when she was about 19.

According to the sheriff's office, the boy detailed two separate incidents in which he said Vanosdell touched him inappropriately, undressed him and forced herself on him.

The Advocate reports the boy told investigators he felt weird during the encounters and thought Vanosdell would hurt him if he resisted. He also said he thought he would be in trouble if he told anyone about the alleged incidents.

Vanosdell was arrested Tuesday on two counts of first-degree rape. It was unknown if she has an attorney.
