Northshore authorities say a man from Covington is accused of the rape of his medically-handicapped neighbor.

24-year-old Joshua Brown has been booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on one count of first-degree rape.

St. Tammany Parish sheriff's officials say they were contacted Wednesday night by the victim's family members, who said the mentally-handicapped woman was lured to Brown's home and repeatedly raped.

An initial court date for Brown was not available on Thursday.
