Ponchatoula man arrested for first-degree rape of a juvenile

From Ponchatoula Police

Ponchatoula- Chief Bry Layrisson announces the arrest of Malcolm J. Chester, age 32, on a First Degree Rape charge.

The Ponchatoula Police Department received the initial call regarding this incident, but requested that the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office conduct the investigation due to the offender having a close relative that works for PPD.

TPSO conducted the investigation into this matter and subsequently filed charges against Chester for First Degree Rape. The victim was a juvenile and therefore, the name will not be released.

PPD Detectives and Street Crimes Unit received a copy of the arrest warrant this morning and placed Chester into custody. He was also booked on 12 failure to appear warrants through the City of Ponchatoula and a TPSO warrant for Aggravated Assault with a Firearm from 2018. He was released into the custody of TPSO.

Additional charges are pending. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to please contact the Ponchatoula Police Department.

Chief Layrisson would like to thank TPSO, Tangipahoa Parish School System, and the Department of Children and Family Services for their help in this investigation.
