A local man is behind bars, accused of sexual misconduct involving two female victims.

Agents with the U.S. Marshal's Office Fugitive Task Force arrested 35-year-old Troy Stephenson this morning at his home in the 4300 block of North Market Street. They'd been looking for him on outstanding warrants for sexual battery and indecent behavior with a juvenile.

The charges came after an ongoing investigation by Shreveport Police Sex Crimes Investigators, who were following up on claims that Stephenson committed sexual battery on a 17-year-old girl, and engaged in indecent behavior with another girl who was 12 years old at the time. He was a registered sex offender prior to both charges.

Following interviews with investigators, Stephenson was booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
