Shreveport Louisiana police have charged a local man who they believe molested at least two little girls.
Investigators with the department’s Sex Crimes Unit were notified last week that a 9-year-old female disclosed to her parents that she had been molested. Upon further investigation, detectives were able to identify the male suspect as 48-year-old Donald Meshell. Detectives were also able to link Meshell to another open investigation that allegedly occurred in 2002 involving a 7-year-old female victim.
Based on information gathered during the ongoing inquiry, detectives obtained an arrest warrant charging Meshell with two counts of molestation of juveniles.
Authorities in Webster Parish took Meshell into custody on last Thursday afternoon and booked him into Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Facility. On Friday, Meshell was extradited to Caddo Parish and booked into the Caddo Parish Correctional Center.
Detectives believe there may be other victims and Meshell may face additional charges. Anyone with any information concerning these cases should contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373
