HARTFORD, Wis. - The leader of a Christian fundraising group was arrested Saturday in Pennsylvania after ten children accused him of abandoning them while they solicited donations.

Rafeal Andrews, 39, was charged with four counts each of reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

A website identifies Andrews as the CEO of Christian Programs for Inner City Children, or CPIC International.

The group based in Hartford, Wisconsin appears to use door-to-door soliciting as a fundraiser and character building exercise for young volunteers.
