On another occasion, the report states the teenage girl was allegedly assaulted in a vehicle, and allegedly assaulted a third time in a home.

The report also states that the victim, "did not want to report the incident until now due to Darrell owning a gun and she was in fear of retaliation."

According to the report, the victim confided in a person at the time of the alleged assaults, and police were able to find that person, and the person "had intimate knowledge of [redacted] and the sexual abuse she suffered."

According to the church's website, www.newbreedchristian.com, Blair is an anointed minister and gospel-recording artist and he founded New Breed Christian Church with his spouse.
