An Olmsted Falls Boy Scout leader and former auxiliary police officer was charged with multiple counts of rape Monday.

Olmsted Falls Police Chief William Traine said officers arrested and charged Aaron Robertson, 26, with more than ten counts of rape against a 15-year-old boy, though there could be additional victims.

It's unclear if the 15-year-old victim is himself a boy scout.

In a video sent by the Boy Scouts of America Tuesday, Scout Executive Marc Ryan said the organization removed Robertson from his position as soon as the allegations came to light.  

Police don't believe Robertson has any children of his own.

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

Police say prior to the investigation, Robertson did not have a criminal history. Police are conducting an investigation and working with the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor to bring the case to the grand jury.

Robertson was denied bond. He will appear again in court on Tuesday, March 14 at 9:45 a.m. at the Justice Center.
