Lake Worth police have charged a 19-year-old church daycare volunteer with aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Police said a warrant was issued for Ryan Welborn, who was later arrested and posted a $30,000 bond. He is now free and awaiting trial.

Welborn was a volunteer at the Metropolitian Baptist Church where police said he assaulted a boy younger than 6 years old, police said. How Welborn came to be a suspect and where the assault took place has not yet been revealed by investigators.

Welborn has been dismissed from the church, police said.

Police are asking anyone with information about the assault to come forward.  They are also encouraging anyone who believes their child may have been a victim to call Det. B. Benningfield at 817-237-1224.
