Police state that the young girl has been attending the church for two years and Jenkins had been making advances towards her when she was 12. The victim reported to the police that she was held against her will, strangled her and then sexually assaulted her.
Cpl. Anthony Bertanga talked about how Jenkins has a criminal history and has been convicted for robbery, burglary, narcotics violations and more. Bertanga said, “The way he handled this child, in the manner he handled this child, in the location he handled this child, leads them to believe that potentially there are other victims out there.” Authorities are asking if anyone has more information on Jenkins to come forward.
