METHUEN, Mass. (AP) -- Police arrested a Mormon church volunteer yesterday in Massachusetts for allegedly assaulting a boy he was responsible for watching over.

43-year-old Kevin Curlew faces several charges in the alleged incident. They include indecent assault and battery on a person under 14, enticement of a child, assault and battery, reckless endangerment of a child and kidnapping.

He was arrested after police investigated a report that Curlew had assaulted the boy at the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints in Methuen, Massachusetts.

Police say the boy is the only known victim, but they're looking into whether there are more.

Curlew's responsibilities at the church included watching parishioners' children while the parents attended church events.
