NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio — Following a year-long investigation involving the North Olmsted and North Ridgeville police departments, authorities say they have obtained an indictment against David A. Walker and his wife, Anna, for several counts of sexual battery.
Authorities say the alleged assaults took place between May 2005 and December 2007 while David was a youth pastor for Church Alive International in Cleveland and later at The Dwelling Place Family Worship center in North Olmsted.
The allegations involve a 14-year-old girl, who police say was a parishioner and member of both youth group churches.
Walker was also a teacher and a coach at the Cleveland Christian Academy, police say, which is now closed.
Police say both turned themselves in at the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office on Monday.
Anybody with information is asked to call the North Olmsted Police Department at 440-777-3535 or the North Ridgeville Police Department at 440-327-2191.
