JACKSONVILLE, Florida Two men have been charged with
assaulting teenagers in a church, thanks to a whistle-blower's tip.

The lawyer for 56-year-old Paul Keith Groover and 45-year-old Darrell Vincent Moore declined comment Tuesday after his clients pleaded not guilty to sexual assault charges.

Officials say Groover's father is a church leader at Greater Refuge Temple.

Moore is accused of raping several girls, including one at knifepoint. Arrest warrants say Groover molested a boy for several years and texted him locations in the church to meet him for sex.

Both are charged with sexual battery. Moore is also charged with lewd and lascivious conduct.

It was unclear what prompted the whistle-blower to come forward.
