FERRIDAY, La. – A Ferriday man was arrested Wednesday night on a charge of molesting a 2-year-old girl, according to Ferriday police.

Willie M. Brooks, 39, of 611 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Ferriday, on charges of molestation of an infant and unauthorized use of a movable.

As of Thursday night, his bond had not yet been set, and he was transferred to Concordia Parish Correctional Facility I.
