The fugitive American pastor Victor Arden Barnard, who proclaimed he was Christ on Earth, was arrested in Brazil on Friday.

Barnard had set up a “shepherd’s camp” in Pine County, Minnesota, in the mid-1990s. He convinced members of his congregation to allow their first-born daughters to live with him. The group was called “The Maidens.”

Two of the young women later accused him of sexually assaulting them for years.
