19 Year Old Man Charged With Raping 5 Year Old In Church


Blake Cole, 19 appeared in a Vandalia courtroom Friday to answer to one count of rape of a child under 10. Cole is accused of raping a five year old boy inside a Harrison Township church earlier this week.

Cole’s bond was set at $250,000 and he was ordered to stay away from the victim, if he does get out of jail.
HARRISON TOWNSHIP — The Montgomery County Prosecutors Office have formally charged a 19 year old man for raping a five year old inside of a Dayton Church.

Blake Cole was arrested Tuesday at the church. The rape breaks Tina Workman a mother of boys heart.

“As a mother and a grandmother I’m very, very disturbed with this and especially in a church, what is really going on in this world today,” said Tina Workman of Dayton.

Workman along with others who live in the city of Dayton are disgusted and confused as to why a five year old was raped inside of Fort McKinley United Methodist Church rape Tuesday evening. “That is terrible, you should be safe in a church that should be one of the safest place for any kids, said Joel Taylor of Dayton.

“It’s something that just completely disgust me. That’s just unacceptable and it’s a sad thing in society that people actually do that,” said Nick Scibert of Kettering.

“A five year old boy, where were there parents?” said Michael Knisley.

Those are questions reporter Annette Peagler tried to get answered but Executive Pastor David Hood gave little details and referred her to police who are currently still interviewing those involved. He said Cole and the boy were regular attendees but didn’t confirm how they knew each other or where the parents were.

“The spiritual, emotional and physical safety of all our members is of highest priority to Fort McKinley Church — especially for our children, which is why we deploy trained security at our Tuesday night Discipleship events and follow security procedures for our Children’s Ministry. We are heartbroken by the allegations from April 9, and our staff is fully cooperating with law enforcement and investigators in every possible manner. We ask that the community join us in prayer for all those involved in this situation,” said David Hood, Executive Pastor of Fort McKinley United Methodist Church.

It was an off duty security guard that found Cole and the boy together. He then called police.

“That does make me feel better that they did catch him right away but maybe they should be cautious of what’s going on in our churches,” said Workman.

The rape is a stern reminder to always know where your child is and who they are with.

“Keep a good eye on your children, keep them close by and don’t let them go very far and if you do and in a church you would think it would be okay but maybe go to church and make sure that everything is okay,” said Workman

Cole will be arraigned Friday morning. He’s being held at the Montgomery County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
