SACRAMENTO (KRON) — A man is accused of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old at a church in Sacramento.
39-year-old Rolis Wheeler, of West Sacramento, has been charged with sexual assault on a minor under 10, and kidnapping in connection to the incident that police say happened at the New Discovery Christian Church.
It happened when the 4-year-old went to use the restroom while the congregation was praying.
“Tt was a shock to all of us and we’ll do whatever we can to be there for everybody, and we just wanted to let them know,” said William Mendoza, a Worship Leader of the church.
Mendoza says the man was homeless before joining the church three or four years ago.
