VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A youth pastor in Chesapeake has been arrested in a sex abuse case.

Virginia Beach Police said Monday that 40-year-old Gregory Douglas Forehand is charged with indecent liberties with a child.

Police spokeswoman Grazia Moyers says the victim told police he was 16 when the alleged abuse occurred on several occasions between May 2005 and June 2006 at the suspect's Chesapeake home.

Forehand is the youth minister at Real Life Christian Church. Moyers says investigators learned children had stayed at the home for church events. Investigators are trying to determine whether there are other possible victims.

Forehand is free on bond. It's not immediately known whether he has an attorney. A call to Virginia Beach General District Court went unanswered.

A person answering the phone at the church declined comment.
