KILGORE — A Kilgore minister was arrested on Monday and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Kilgore Police arrested Glenn Douglas Barton, 62, of Kilgore, on the 100 block of Woodlawn St.
Barton is the Senior Pastor at Calvary Way Church at 106 Woodlawn St. in Kilgore.
Barton was charged with an outstanding Rusk County warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child, which is a felony.
The arrest and warrant stems from an ongoing investigation conducted by the crimingal investigation unit of the Kilgore Police Department.
The investigation began after Kilgore Police investigators received a report two weeks prior to Barton's arrest, alleging that he had sexually assaulted a child between the years 2009 and 2013.
Currently this investigation has revealed no other victims, however, the investigation is still ongoing.
According to the Calvary Way church website, Barton has been pastoring in Kilgore since 1999, and even "kept the doors fo Calvary Way from closing". The website states that Barton "started churches, fostered missions' works, and spread the truth and love of Jesus" in many states across the country.
