According to St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Captain Ginny Higgins, via press release, a man and woman from Breaux Bridge have been arrested for allegedly committing sexual assault on a juvenile.

While some details are being released, because the case involves a juvenile, there are many details that will not be released.

Higgins says that 40-year-old Frederick Johnson and 41-year-old Crystal Owen were arrested on several charges.
