The leader of the House of Prayer church, who was convicted on child cruelty charges and evaded arrest for five months after missing a probation hearing, was taken into custody Monday night.

The Rev. Arthur Allen, 71, was arrested by National Park Service rangers who found him in a parked car and turned him over to the Fulton County Sheriffs Office, authorities said.

Allen had eluded police since March, when he skipped a hearing to determine whether he had violated probation by not attending parental counseling courses.

Allen and five others were found guilty in October of brutally whipping two boys, then 7 and 10, at the northwest Atlanta church in February 2001.
