A Fort Bend County pastor has been charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

Daniel Carrel, 27, is an assistant pastor at Sienna Ranch Baptist Church. He faces multiple counts of sexual assault, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators said they got a tip from the victim's mother on Wednesday and on Friday they arrested Carrel.

The mother told investigators she noticed some suspicious conversations between her daughter and the pastor on the teen's phone.

The two were communicating through social media, she said. Carrel has confessed to having sex with the 14-year-old, authorities said.

The victim told investigators they had sex six to eight times at his house, in his car, in his office at the church and at her house.

Carrel is in jail on a $75,000 bond. At this time, there is no evidence of any other victims.
