Arrest Made in Molestation of a Juvenile - Friday, September 14, 2012
On September 9th 2012, Assumption Parish Deputies were dispatched to the New Belmont Baptist Church (3037 Highway 1 Labadieville, LA) in reference to an alleged sexual assault. Upon arrival, Deputies spoke with the complainant who stated that she discovered her fourteen year old daughter behind the church with 23 year old Travanti Williams of Labadieville, LA. It appeared that the two were involved in an inappropriate sexual act. The mother approached the two and pushed her daughter off of the man and called the Sheriff’s Office. Williams fled the area before deputies could arrive. During the investigation Detectives learned that the two were attending church on that day. The Juvenile went outside and Williams approached her. Williams led her to a secluded area behind the church where he placed her in a bear hug and began to sexually assault her, but the juvenile’s mother was able to interact before that happened. The juvenile also informed detectives that this was not the first time Williams had made a sexual advance towards her. The juvenile was taken for medical evaluation and later released.

Detectives secured an arrest warrant late yesterday for Williams for one count of Molestation of a Juvenile. Williams was taken into custody yesterday and booked on unrelated charges of Simple Criminal Damage to Property under $500, Un-authorized entry of an Inhabited Dwelling, Simple Battery and Failure to Appear for Simple Battery. He was booked today with charge of Molestation of a Juvenile.

Sheriff Waguespack asks that if you have any information in reference to this case please contact the Detectives Division at (985) 526-1627.
