A Seventh-Day Adventist pastor is now being sought by the police for allegedly sodomizing a boy.

The pastor recently had responsibility over a congregation in a section of Westmoreland.

He reportedly fled the island for the United States days before the Police received an official report from the victim and his mother.

The boy, a minor, who is also an Adventist, is alleged to have been a victim of sexual assault since September 2017.

The minor had reportedly refused to submit a statement initially, claiming he has forgiven the pastor.

However, after being referred to the Child Protection and Family Services Agency and Victim Services Division of the Ministry of Justice, the boy was were encouraged to give a formal statement.

The Police say they are collaborating with their overseas counterparts to locate and have the accused pastor extradited.
