SLIDELL, La. -- Police arrested a 53-year-old man who was a paraeducator at Bonne Ecole Elementary School for allegedly molesting a 10-year-old boy.

Police were contacted Sunday by a mother who informed authorities that her son had been fondled by Wendell Troullier. The boy had been Troullier's house, when, the boy said, Troullier touched him inappropriately.

Investigators learned Troullier was a paraeducator who worked at Bonne Ecole Elementary School. Authorities notified the St. Tammany Parish School Board of the alleged misconduct, and school officials removed Troullier from the school. Troullier is no longer an employee of the St. Tammany Parish Public School System, according to police. The incident in question, however, did not take place at the school, nor did it involve a Bonne Ecole student, police said.

He was charged with molestation of a juvenile, and was booked at the Slidell City Jail. He has been transferred to the St. Tammany Parish Jail.

The investigation is still ongoing, and Slidell Police are not ruling out the possibility that there may be other victims. Anyone who may have had inappropriate contact with Troullier is asked to contact Sergeant Jim Davis at 985-646-4347 or
