St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Carencro man on a charge of child sex abuse. 

Douglas Kimball Jr., 39, was booked with one count molestation of a juvenile. His bond has been set at $5,000.

The arrest followed an investigation that began in November after a report of sex abuse on a child. The investigation led to a warrant being issued for Kimball, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said. 

He initially was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center because he was arrested in Lafayette, the spokeswoman said. This afternoon, he was transferred to the St. Martin Parish Correctional Center, she said.
