WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Police have been trying to find an eastern Pennsylvania pastor who resigned in November and is now wanted on charges he raped and impregnated a teen girl.

West Whiteland Township police say 33-year-old Jacob Malone, of Exton, may have fled the state since he was charged last week with rape, institutional sexual assault and other crimes.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Malone, who is charged with incidents that began in September 2014, when the girl was still 17.

The Rev. Bill Bateman says Malone worked at Calvary Fellowship in Downingtown for about 18 months before he resigned in November. Bateman says that happened after church leaders learned the girl was pregnant, and about other allegations that Malone has an in appropriate relationship with another female in another state.
