HCSO Child Abuse Arrest Man, Reaching Out For Other Victims.

(Harris County, TX) Investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Child Abuse Unit have charged 66-year-old Hollis Vaughn with continue sexual abuse of a child.

The victim made an outcry to a family member that Vaughn had sexually abused and touched the juvenile inappropriately for a number of years.

Investigators say that Vaughn is a director/ pastor of two local ministries called God’s Awesome Army Ministry, and El Shaddai World Outreach Church both operated from his home in north Harris County.

The concern for law enforcement investigators is there may be other victims of Vaughn who have never come forward.

Vaughn is currently released on a $100,000 bond.

His next court appearance is set for August 31, 2017 in the 174th District Court.

Anyone with information on Vaughn is urged to call the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Child Abuse Unit at 713-830-3250.
