PRESS rELEASE: Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested and believed responsible for at least two sexual assault incidents in Houston since May 2016.

The suspect, Barry Todd Durrell (w/m, 55), is charged with super aggravated sexual assault and continuous sexual abuse of a child in the 176th State District Court.

A photo of Durrell is attached to this news release.

Durrell, an ordained deacon, is believed responsible for at least two incidents at the West Houston Seventh Day Adventist Church at 2390 West Sam Houston Parkway North.

The first incident occurred inside the church in May 2016. Burrell took the male victim, 2, inside the church and then to a closet where he sexually assaulted the juvenile. The mother of the victim later found the child and Burrell in the closet by themselves. A second male victim, 7, came forward in February 2017 and told family members about ongoing assaults. As the victim was attending a class at the church, Burrell would take the victim multiple times to the restroom and commit the sexual assault. The second victim also stated he was sexually assaulted in other locations, 2900 West Sam Houston Parkway South and 300 Memorial City Way.

Investigators believe there are other victims and are asking anyone with information or who may have had contact with Barry Durrell to contact the HPD Special Victims Division at 713-830-3254 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
