Court documents indicate former pastor abused boy for 3 years



CONCORD, N.C. - Channel 9 obtained a court complaint against former Concord Pastor Robert Price in the suspected sexual abuse between him and a boy at his church.

He was arrested Monday at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport after a two-year mission trip in Nicaragua.

The alleged victim joined Price's Kings Way Church when he was almost 12 years old, according to court records. The pastor immediately formed a relationship as the two worked out together.

After workouts, Price would massage the alleged victim and that escalated to sexual abuse that continued for three years, according to the complaint.

The incidents occurred in the defendant's motor vehicle, home, at the church and at the youth shack, which is another building on the church campus, according to court documents.

Documents indicate the alleged victim was kicked out of his house and lived with Price.

"While defendant Bobby Price's wife and children were asleep, defendant Bobby Price sexually molested plaintiff in his home," according to court documents.

The alleged victim told authorities when he was 16 years old he found the strength to break free of Price and the church.

Price now faces five charges of sexual abuse and is out of jail.
