FAIRFIELD, Calif. (KGO) — A Fairfield pastor has been arrested, accused of a string of child molestations dating back as far as the mid-1990s.

Police arrested 65-year-old Robert Ruark at his Suisun City home Thursday night. Ruark also goes by Father Silas.

Police say they received disturbing information from clergy members at Saint Timothy’s Orthodox Church in Fairfield that Ruark molested at least five children in the mid-1990s.

Thursday, police interviewed potential victims, now adults in their 20s.
