METAIRIE, La. — A 79-year-old Metairie man has been accused of repeatedly molesting a young girl several years ago.

Citing an arrest report, NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/2cacG3j ) reports Jorge Medina was arrested Tuesday on an aggravated rape charge.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office investigators say Medina sexually abused a girl, who’s now 13, when she was between the ages of 3 and 5.

Deputies say they learned of the abuse in May and opened an investigation.

Medina was released Wednesday on a $35,000 bond. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
