OLMSTED FALLS, OH – An auxiliary police officer with the city of Olmsted Falls, who was also a Boy Scout troop leader, has been arrested and charged with rape of an underage boy.
Aaron Robertson, 28, was not on duty at the time of the incident and has been relieved of his duties by the city. He had no criminal history.
Olmsted Falls Police Chief William Traine said in a press conference Monday that Robertson had been relieved of his duties and was in the Strongsville Jail. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday morning. He would not say if Robertson’s contact with the victim came from Robertson’s involvement with the Scouts.
Traine said that the original tip about this case came from a call to Child Protective Services, who then contacted the police for help with the investigation. He did not specifically say how many counts of rape are involved, but did say it was “over 10.” As of Monday night, police had only identified one victim, although they said there was always the possibility that more victims would be identified.
