Rushville police said that they have arrested 72-year-old Garry Evans after being accused of luring girls into his office with candy and touching their private parts.

Evans has been charged with 3 counts of child molestation, 4 counts of sexual battery, and 5 counts of child solicitation.

He was booked into the Rush County Jail, pending a bail hearing.

According to the police investigation, Evans was the pastor at the Rushville Baptist Temple Church, which is located in the 1300 block of North Spencer Street.

A 3-year-old girl recently revealed that Evans called her into his office and promised to give her candy.

The girl went into the office, where she got candy.

Evans then put his hands into her pants and forced the girl to touch his manhood.

After the public was notified about the sexual abuse, a mother came forward to say that the pastor sexually abused her 5 and 7-year-old girls.

The two sisters were lured into the pastor’s office with candy after which Evans touched their private parts and they touched his genitals.
