BROUSSARD, La. – A Broussard couple is behind bars accused of molestation charges.

Phillip Trosclair, 68, and Brenda Trosclair, 65, were arrested on Monday for the charge of molestation of a juvenile under 13 years of age, according to Chief Brannon Decou, Broussard Police Department.

On April 03, 2019, officers with the Broussard Police Department were contacted by medical staff in reference to a child molestation complaint of a four-year-old girl.
