A pastor was arrested on Thursday evening at his Diamond, East Bank Demerara home, after being accused of rape by a church member, whom he had been counselling.
Stabroek News was reliably informed that up to yesterday afternoon, the man was still in custody.
His accuser told police that the assault occurred last month, when the pastor reportedly invited her to his house for dinner and made sexual advances towards her.
This newspaper was told that the man is likely to be charged soon.
Stabroek News understands that the pastor began providing counselling to the victim in 2015, after her father passed away.
