TERREBONNE PARISH, LA (WVUE) - A 47-year-old Terrebonne Parish man has been arrested for allegedly molesting a juvenile over the past several years.

Mark Allen Dumont, 47 of Dulac, was arrested by Terrebonne Parish deputies on Wednesday.

Detectives say that a teenage female informed deputies that she had been the victim of sexual assault for the past 5-6 years. The victim stated that the suspect touched her in an inappropriate manner on several occasions.

Upon making contact with the suspect, deputies say Dumont denied the allegations. However, a further investigation led police to arrest Dumont on Wednesday.

He was transported to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex where he was booked and jailed. He remains in jail on a $20,000.00 bond.

Police say Dumont was also arrested on an outstanding warrant in Gilmer, Texas.
