Fort Lauderdale Resident Raymond Vincent Is a Youth Pastor... and an Alleged Child Molester
Fort Lauderdale resident and McDonald's employee Raymond Vincent is a youth pastor in Pompano Beach.
The Fort Lauderdale Police Department says he also molested a young girl several times.
According to a police report, Vincent, 41, lured the girl -- who's described as being under age 12 -- into his apartment with food.
Vincent began to grope her and told her "do not tell anyone," the report states.
After the cops were informed of that incident, police say the girl told them there were two other occasions in which Vincent pulled a similar move, and both times he also told her not to tell anyone.
While being interviewed by police, Fort Lauderdale Police Detective Travis Mandell says, Vincent "mentioned to detectives that he is a youth pastor at a church in Pompano."
"Due to the fact that Vincent is a youth pastor," Mandell says, investigators "are concerned" that there may be other victims.
Also, the cops don't know exactly which church Vincent's a youth pastor at, so if either of those issues concerns you, phone up the cops.
Vincent was booked into the Broward County Jail on three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a victim under 12 years old, and he's being held there without bond.
