BALLWIN, MO - A Missouri couple is accused of luring a young girl into their home and forcing her to perform sex acts.

Both face four counts each of first-degree statutory sodomy.

A couple of days after the alleged attack, the girl came forward and told police what happened – once she entered the Ballwin home on Quail Village Court, she said Roderick and Golden led her upstairs where they allegedly took turns sodomizing her, police said.

Roderick has a lengthy criminal record and spent seven years in prison for  assault, drugs, weapons, resisting arrest, burglary and leaving the scene of an accident, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Roderick is being held on $250,000 bail; Golden on $100,000 bail with 10 percent cash allowed.
