Boy Scout leader charged with raping boy

An Ohio Boy Scout leader and former auxiliary police officer has been accused of raping a 15-year-old boy.

WEWS reports Olmsted Falls police arrested Aaron Robertson and charged him with more than 10 counts of rape.

Police say Robertson raped at least one underage boy, but there could be additional victims. It's unclear if the 15-year-old victim is himself a Boy Scout.

"Children are afraid. You touch a child and it's not like he'll run to mom or dad and said what happened. He thinks about it for a while," Olmsted Falls Police Department Chief William Traine said.

"I don't believe it. Not until I hear all the facts because, like I said, I have nothing but good to say about him and his family," neighbor Larry Lasky said.

Robertson was relieved of his duties as an unarmed voluntary auxiliary officer upon his arrest.
