Lachlan Roberts 24 January 2019

A 41-year-old Evatt man and member of the clergy has been arrested and charged by the ACT Policing Criminal Investigations Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team after allegedly grooming a teenage girl last year.

Police will allege the clergyman groomed a 14-year-old girl using a mobile phone application between October and November last year.

ACT Policing Criminal Investigations commenced an investigation late last year, following a referral from NSW Police.

The man was arrested, charged and will face the ACT Magistrates Court today with strict bail conditions imposed.
