JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A man who claims to be an associate pastor at a Jefferson County church was arrested and charged with raping a 13-year-old girl in the church's kitchen.

Tyrone Banks, 58, is accused of raping the victim on April 12 when she spent the night with him. The victim's mother reported the assault. She told investigators that Banks was a family friend.

According to the report, the suspect drove to a church near Hueytown where Banks claims to be an associate pastor. He had a key to the church and took the victim inside to the kitchen where he sexually assaulted her, said investigators.

He allegedly drove the victim back home and she told her mother what happened.

Banks was arrested on May 2 and charged with rape and sodomy. He posted $120,000 bond and was released on May 4.
