Christian Rocker Arrested for Child Sex Assault Right Before Performing at Music Festival

Emanuel Rodriguez is expected to be transferred to Nebraska to answer to answer the charges.

A Christian rocker had to cancel his performance at eastern Minnesota’s Wood City Music Festival after Cloquet, Minn., cops arrested him on two charges of felony sex assault against a child, according to an ABC News affiliate in Duluth.

The 44-year-old front man, Emanuel Rodriguez, will be transferred to Nebraska to answer to third-degree assault allegations involving two victims under the age of 14. Twin Cities reports. The holy roller is said to know the alleged victims. A warrant for his arrest was issued in Sept. 2016.

When Rodriguez isn’t performing with his band 70xForgiven, he works as a pastor in southwest Iowa. The Wood City Festival was one of several stops on the band’s Light the Fire tour. According to the band’s website, that tour does not include any bars or clubs. The group is also advertising for a new bass player.
