ATLANTA (AP) - A former volunteer youth ministry worker at a Fayette County church has been accused of sexually abusing two teenage boys.

Authorities arrested Matthew Bradley Young of Norcross on Sept. 18 and charged him with child molestation and sexual battery against a child under 16.

Incident reports filed by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office said an investigation started after authorities received complaints from the boys’ parents.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (https://on-ajc.com/1NRHjcs ) reports that the parents believed their children were assaulted during a May 9 church function. Sheriff’s office spokesman Allen Stevens said no further details would be released because of the ongoing investigation.

Young was being held Tuesday in the Fayette County jail. It was not immediately clear whether he had a defense attorney.
