Child rape arrest in Lafourche

A Thibodaux man has been arrested and charged with aggravated rape of child under the age of 13.  

A family member of the alleged victim initially reported the incident to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office on Monday of this week.

According to Sheriff's spokesman Brennan Matherne they initially thought the sexual assault was an isolated incident.

''As the investigation continued they learned that Hebert had sexual contact multiple times with the juvenile in this case,'' said Matherne.

Listen to Brennan Matherne:

Scott Hebert, age 28, was arrested and booked on charges of aggravated sexual assault in lieu of  $500,000 bond.  Could there be other victims?

'' At this point there's no reason to believe anything further but we are continuing the investigation," said Matherne.

Matherne says in order to protect the victim they are not releasing the exact age of the child is being withheld.
