A 29-year-old Lockport man is in the custody of the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office for allegedly fondling two males.
Sheriff Craig Webre said that detectives recently opened an investigation into Jeffrey Allen, 29, of Lockport, after a male victim came forward with allegations that the suspect had touched him inappropriately and without consent on two occasions in the past three years when the victim was 18.
Another male was also identified as a victim who had a similar experience when he was 17.
Following an investigation, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect.
On September 15, detectives made contact with Allen and he was taken into custody.
He was booked into the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex in Thibodaux on three counts of sexual battery (forcible fondling). Bail is set at $30,000.
This investigation is continuing. Anyone who may have additional information is asked to contact the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at (985) 532-4320.
