Former church volunteer arrested in child sex assault case

Posted: Updated:

Police in Lake Worth arrested a 19-year-old former church volunteer in a sex assault case involving a young child.

Ryan Welborn, a former daycare worker at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Lake Worth, is accused of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Police did not provide details, but say the alleged victim is a boy under the age of 6.

Detectives began investigating Welborn back in October, and were able to get enough information for a judge to issue an arrest warrant.

Welborn was taken into custody on Thursday, but is now free on a $30,000 bond.

Lake Worth Police are worried there may be more victims. If you know anything about the church or Welborn, please call Detective B. Benningfield at 817-237-1227.
