A former Bible study instructor at an Annapolis church was arrested and charged with sexually abusing a child, Anne Arundel police said Friday.
The police department said Erick Ernesto Granados-Zeledon, 39, was arrested without incident at his home in the 1700 block of Oldtown Road in Edgewater on Thursday.
A child told investigators he had been sexually abused by Granados-Zeledon, who was a chaperone and Bible study instructor at Iglesia Hispana Emmanuel in Annapolis. The child was 10 at the time of the abuse.
Police spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure said none of the abuse happened at the church itself, but the department is concerned there may be more victims as his position put him in regular contact with children.
Charging documents state Granados-Zeledon was a friend of the victim's family through the church and that he would take the child "from (the family's) residence to church, out to eat and occasionally to his residence in Edgewater."
Granados-Zeledon admitted to the investigating officer he'd performed sexual acts with the child in March when he drove the boy to his home, charging documents state.
Granados-Zeledon has been charged with second-, third- and fourth-degree sex offense, child abuse, sexual abuse of a minor, sodomy and second-degree assault.
Police said the church has been cooperating with law enforcement. Granados-Zeledon is no longer a volunteer at the church. Police added he had no affiliation with the church's private school or day care.
A spokesperson for the church did not comment as to how long Granados-Zeledon had been with the church.
No attorney was listed as representing Granados-Zeledon in online court records.
He is being held without bail following a bail review hearing on Friday.
Attempts to reach family members were unsuccessful.
Police are asking any other possible victims to call 410-222-4733, and anyone who wishes to leave tips anonymously may call 410-222-4700.
