An ordained deacon has been arrested in connection to at least two sexual assault incidents at a west Houston church, police said
Barry Todd Durrell, 55, was arrested after reports of repeated sexual assault incidents involving two boys under the age of 10 at the West Houston Seventh Day Adventist Church, police said.
According to police, Durrell took a 2-year-old boy into a closet at the church on 2390 West Sam Houston Parkway North and molested him. They said the mother of the child found Durrell and the child in the closet alone.
Police said a 7-year-old boy came forward and told family members in February about ongoing incidents with the deacon where Burrell sexually assaulted him multiple times.
According to police, the child was attending a class at the church and Burrell took him to the restroom and assaulted him on multiple occasions.
The victim said the incidents happened at two other locations including, 2900 West Sam Houston Parkway South and 300 Memorial City.
