A 60-year-old Moravian minister of religion has been arrested and charged with the rape and carnal abuse of a 15-year-old girl.
Rupert Clarke, the minister at the Nazareth Moravian Church in Manchester was arrested in St Elizabeth last night.
The police report that about 9 p.m., they were on patrol in a community near Black River when they observed a parked car that aroused their suspicion.
They went to investigate and reportedly found the pastor in a compromising position with the child.
He was immediately taken into police custody.
The police have since launched a wider investigation into the matter and are interviewing the mother and guardian of the girl who turned 15 years old last week.
Clarke, who is from Fairfield, Manchester, is expected to appear in the St Elizabeth Parish Court soon.
