A minister is facing charges of indecency with a child after being accused of molesting two relatives, police said.

Tom David Brown, 67, of Dallas was arrested Thursday by Dallas police on charges of indecency with a child by exposure and indecency with a child by contact.

Mr. Brown could not be reached for comment.

Police said the incidents began in 1998 and occurred as recently as March. Authorities say the victims, preteen girls, gave accounts to police.

The incidents occurred in a northeast Dallas residence, police said.

Mr. Brown was a minister at Custer Road United Methodist Church in Plano.
