A Junction City man has been arrested for alleged sex crimes involving children. Jordan Young, 25, was arrested by Junction City police late Monday morning.
Junction City Police Chief Tim Brown says Young was arrested on charges of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, attempted criminal sodomy and solicitation of a child. Officials say he is being held without bond in the Geary County Jail. Brown would not comment further on Young’s arrest, saying only that the investigation is ongoing.
Last week, Brown confirmed his department was investigating information they received about a local church. He has not yet confirmed the name of the church.
Sources say Young works at Faith Tabernacle Apostolic Church in Junction City as the minister in charge of the church's music. Young is the son of former Faith Tabernacle pastor Edwin Young.
The church’s new pastor, Nathan Dudley, says he can not comment on any allegations or the police investigation because he does not want to do anything to impede on the police probe. He says the church is fully cooperating with authorities. Dudley says he has only been the pastor of the church for a matter of days.
Officials say Young will make his first court appearance on Tuesday or Wednesday at the Geary County Courthouse.
