OLMSTED FALLS, Ohio (AP) — A suburban Cleveland Boy Scouts troop leader suspected of raping a 15-year-old boy has been arrested and terminated from work as an auxiliary policeman.
Olmsted Falls police Chief William Traine says 28-year-old Aaron Robertson was arrested Monday and jailed on a rape charge. The department also ended Robertson’s role as a voluntary, unarmed officer there.
The Berea Municipal Court had no attorney information for Robertson before his arraignment Tuesday.
Traine says a tip to child protective services led to the investigation of Robertson, who is suspected in over 10 instances of abuse involving one boy. Police wouldn’t say whether the boy is connected to the Scouts troop.
Cleveland.com reports it isn’t clear how long Robertson worked with the troop or whether he was leading it when the alleged crimes occurred.
