Teen accused of inappropriately touching children

BALDWIN, LA (WAFB) -

A teenage boy was arrested Monday morning on multiple warrants for indecent behavior with juveniles.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office reported the unnamed 16-year-old from Baldwin was arrested on three separate warrants during a traffic stop.

One warrant was for indecent behavior with juveniles. Another was for three counts of indecent behavior with juveniles and attempted indecent behavior with juveniles. The third was for two counts of indecent behavior with juveniles.

Deputies said they received three complaints in April about indecent behavior and molestation. They added the teen is accused of inappropriately touching a boy and two girls. The alleged victims are all six years old.

Investigators believe the abuse happened multiple times in March and April.

A detective obtained arrest warrants and a deputy that pulled over a car in the Franklin area saw the suspect inside and arrested him. The teen was later released to a guardian.

The investigation is ongoing.
