Police have arrested a former pastor who they say molested a young girl.

Norman police confirm that 77-year-old Phillip Paul Ratliff was arrested May 22 on two complaints of lewd acts to a child.

On Sunday, police were notified that Ratliff allegedly had child pornography on a computer at his home in the 2400 block of Bonnybrook Street and that he had reportedly molested a young girl.

After interviewing the victim, police reportedly found enough evidence to arrest Ratliff.

A website shows that Ratliff is the former pastor at Alameda Baptist Church in Norman.
