Investigators say a retired Clarksville police sergeant and associate pastor is suspected of raping a mentally disabled woman.

Charles Alan Denton, 59, faces two counts of rape in the alleged assault of a 34-year-old woman, after an indictment by the Montgomery County grand jury.

According to our news partners at The Leaf-Chronicle, Denton is an associate pastor at Bethel Baptist Church and had retired from the Clarksville Police Department in June 2008 after 32 years of service.

Denton was arrested Thursday by the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and later posted $20,000 bond.
