| January 13, 2013

A 19-year-old man has been accused of sexually assaulting a child in his care during a service at a Lake Worth church, police said Friday.

Ryan Welborn was arrested Wednesday and released on $30,000 bail, Officer Don Price, a spokesman for Lake Worth police, said.

The incident occurred Oct. 14 and involved a 4-year-old boy at Metropolitan Baptist Church in the 6000 block of Azle Avenue, Price said.

"After they left the church, the little boy told his mom that one of the adults sexually assaulted him," Price said.

The family immediately returned to the church and the boy pointed out Welborn, Price said. Church staff called police.

Officers did not get an arrest warrant until results of DNA tests were in, Price said.
