MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A 64-year-old man has been accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl at a Mobile church.

Police tell local media that Rodderick G. Mitchell of Mobile was arrested at Stone Street Baptist Church on Sunday. He has been charged with second-degree sexual abuse.

Churchgoers called authorities after they say Mitchell asked the girl for a hug and proceeded to violate her.

Mitchell has been arrested more than a dozen times, including multiple times on charges of public lewdness.

It was not immediately clear whether Mitchell has an attorney.
