McKinney police arrested 22-year-old Noel Anderson Friday on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child after Anderson admitted to sexually assaulting four children between 2 and 6 years old over the course of the last seven years.

Anderson, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located at 1020 N. Lake Forest Drive, located his victims through church meetings and held responsibilities such as primary instructor for children ages 7-8 in 2014. He also came into contact with children through other church activities.

McKinney police detectives are asking for the public’s assistance to determine if there are additional child victims of Noel Anderson. They encourage parents of children under his care to talk with their child. If they believe any inappropriate contact was made by Anderson, parents are urged to contact McKinney Police Detective U. Watson at 972-547-2729 or [email protected].

Anderson is being held at the Collin County Jail with bond set at $100,000.
