NORTH CHARLESTON Police on Thursday arrested a Summerville pastor in connection with a kidnapping and sexual assault on Midland Park Road the day before.

Magistrate Judge Linda Lombard set bail at $525,000 for 46-year-old Dale Richardson in bond court Friday as the woman who accused him of raping and threatening to kill her sobbed on the shoulder of a victim's advocate. Richardson said in court that he works as a pastor for Freedom Free Will Baptist Church.

Police said they plan to file additional charges. Check back with postandcourier.com later for updates.
