Pastor, soccer coach suspected of molesting girl

A pastor and youth soccer coach has been arrested on suspicion of molesting an 8-year-old girl, Huntington Beach police said Friday.

Christopher Raymond Olague, 39, of Westminster, pastor of Refuge Southland Church in Buena Park, was arrested Oct. 5, according to a police report.

Olague is accused of molesting a girl he was driving to his house for a playdate with one of his children, according to the report. Instead, Olague drove to a Huntington Beach park and molested the girl inside his car, police said.

Before driving her home, he gave her $40 and asked her not to tell her parents, police said. The girl, however, did tell her parents, who called police, according to the report.

Later that afternoon, Huntington Beach and Garden Grove police located Olague and arrested him. He was booked into Huntington Beach City Jail on suspicion of committing a lewd act on a child under 14 years of age and dissuading a witness.

He posted $100,000 bail; his initial court date is scheduled Nov. 28.

Huntington Beach detectives believe that there may be other victims. Anyone with information is asked to call (714) 960-8834 or (714) 536-5988.
