Houma, La. - A Theriot man was arrested Thursday in connection with the aggravated rape of a child, according to Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter.

Detectives began their investigation after the Sheriff's Office received a complaint of possible sexual abuse involving a 7-year-old boy and his 18-year-old family member. The victim reported that he had been coerced into having sexual intercourse with the suspect on at least one occasion during the past month.

The suspect, identified as Jonathon Belanger, 18, admitted to the allegations and provided details about the sexual contact with the juvenile, Larpenter said. He was subsequently booked on one count of aggravated rape and jailed at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex, where he awaits a bond hearing.

The relationship between the victim and suspect, as well as the victim's name, are being withheld due to the nature of the crime, Larpenter said.
