A former youth pastor at Crossroads Community Church in Parker was arrested Tuesday on complaints in Denver and Parker that he sexually assaulted three girls.

Crossroads leadership said the suspect, 35-year-old Joshua Clemons, was placed under arrest at Restoration Community Church in Denver where he was employed.

During a meeting with congregants on Tuesday night, Crossroads officials said the alleged abuse happened while Clemons was working as a youth pastor at the Parker campus.

Clemons was employed with Crossroads from 2006 to 2015. The alleged victims are high school-aged, according to Crossroads.

Church leaders admit they were told in December 2016 that Clemons had been in a relationship with an 18-year-old former youth group member after he left the church in 2015.
