PATTERSON, LA (WAFB) - Authorities have arrested a man wanted on sexual battery charges related to the molestation of a 6-year-old girl.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office said Dexter Clements, 26, of Berwick, was arrested Sunday afternoon on a warrant for two counts of sexual battery.

The sheriff's office reported a deputy working detail at Kemper Williams Park in Patterson learned of the warrant for his arrest after talking to him and running a check.

SMPSO said the warrant stems from an investigation of a molestation complaint that was made in February. Detectives reported their investigation uncovered evidence that pointed to Clements as the suspect.

He was booked into the parish jail. No bond was set.
