SHREVEPORT, La -

Shreveport Police detectives have arrested a local man who they believe molested a 14 year old girl over a two year period.

Back in early July, Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to the 7100 block of Burlingame Boulevard relative to a sexual assault. Upon arrival, officers contacted the father of the victim who advised that his daughter reported to him that she had been sexually assaulted by a family friend. Patrol officers began the investigation and notified detectives.

Shreveport Police Sex Crimes Detectives were assigned the case and subsequently interviewed the victim and her father and learned Fredrick L. Covington, 48, of the 4100 block of Union Street had allegedly sexually assaulted the victim at a his residence. Based on information gathered during an ongoing investigation, authorities procured an arrest warrant for Covington who surrendered to authorities Friday morning at Shreveport Police Headquarters. 

Following interviews with the investigators Covington was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count of molestation of a juvenile.
