TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) — Police say a 67-year-old man who has worked as a worship leader at several Los Angeles-area churches has been charged with molesting a 4-year-old girl in 2008.
Torrance police said in a statement Wednesday that they are seeking more information from the public on Jose Mendez Vazquez, who may have been in contact with children in his work at many churches with Spanish-language services in the South Bay area.
Vazquez was arrested last week and charged with multiple counts of child molestation for the alleged molestation of the 4-year-old outside his home about four years ago.
He was been released on bail.
