PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix pastor is in custody for allegedly molesting two children and having inappropriate sexual contact with two women.

Phoenix police announced Friday that 47-year-old Jorge Vasquez is being held on suspicion of molestation of a child, sexual conduct with a minor, sexual abuse and sexual assault.

He’s the pastor of Iglesia Pentecostales en el Desierto. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer yet.

Police say the alleged sexual contact and molestation happened during counseling sessions and other times when Vasquez was alone with the victims between January 2007 and March 2014.

They say there two adult female victims and two juvenile female victims. None of the victims have been identified.
