TERREBONNE PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A Montegut man was arrested Thursday in connection with the molestation of a family member, according to Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter.

In April the Sheriff’s Office deputies began conducting an investigation into the incident after the alleged victim’s mother reported that her teenage daughter had been molested.

After the initial report was filed, investigators identified 43-year-old Murphy Joseph Melancon II as the suspect.

Melancon was booked into the Terrebonne Parish Jail with molestation of a juvenile and aggravated crime against nature.

Bond was set $300,000.
