LORANGER, La. (AP) - Tangipahoa Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a 53-year-old man accused of trying to solicit sexual behavior from two minors at a Loranger church.
The Advocate reports Robert Elie Jr., of Loranger, was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail Sunday on counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile.
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto says both victims were able to flee from Elie and were physically unharmed.
Panepinto says the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
It was unclear whether Elie has an attorney.
