HARRISON TWP. — The Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office on Thursday approved a rape charge against a 19-year-old accused of assaulting a child at a church in the township.
Blake Cole remains in the county jail on the charge, which the prosecutor’s office said involves a child younger than 10 years old.
County sheriff’s detectives arrested Cole on Tuesday night at Fort McKinley United Methodist Church, in the 3700 block of West Siebenthaler Avenue.
Primary Pastor Dave Hood told News Center7’s Kate Bartley that Cole and the child regularly attend services at the church.
The Tuesday night of the incident is “Discipleship Night” at the church. According to Hood, sheriff’s deputies attend the church — as security guards — and he said a deputy discovered the incident involving Cole and the child.
Someone at the church called 911 and the child was taken to a hospital, said Hood.
