GOLDEN MEADOW, La. – Investigators in Lafourche Parish say an anonymous tip led to the arrest of a man accused of sexual battery of a child under the age of 13.
Sheriff Craig Webre said 36-year-old Rusty Lebouef was arrested Friday. He was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux on charges of sexual battery. His bond was set at $30,000.
Webre said Lebouef allegedly had inappropriate sexual contact with the child. He refused to cooperate with the investigation and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Friday, an anonymous tip through Crimestoppers reported that Leboeuf was in Cut Off. Deputies responded to the location and found Leboeuf hiding in a closet.
