An Ocoee man was being held without bail early Tuesday in the Orange County Jail on charges of molesting children at an Apopka church he attends.
Scott Bohl, 40, was arrested late Saturday on three charges of lewd or lascivious molestation.
The pastor of Apopka Church of God of Prophecy, another church employee and two church members told police that Bohl was suspected of fondling 12- and 6-year-old girls and a 4-year-old boy, a police report shows.
The father of one of the girls told officers he saw Bohl touch his daughter on her clothed buttocks, the report states. The church employee said he saw Bohl hug one of the girls, spank her and tickle her and that the girl tried to get away from him, she told police.
The 6-year-old told an investigator that Bohl had pulled up her skirt, the report shows.
Bohl denied fondling the children, but said he playfully spanked them, the investigator wrote.
