BEAVERTON -- A Sunday school teacher has been accused of sexually abusing a girl he met through his volunteer job with the New Vision Fellowship Church in Beaverton.

Keith Trevor Robinson, 37, was arrested Thursday afternoon at his home on Southwest Hargis Road in Beaverton on one count of first-degree sexual abuse, a Measure 11 crime that carries a mandatory minimum of six years and three months in prison.

Beaverton police said Robinson is accused of touching a girl sexually three or four years ago when she was 6 or 7 and again two or three years ago.

Police also are investigating another complaint involving a younger girl that they say occurred outside the Portland area.

None of the alleged abuse happened on church property or during church events, said Officer Paul Wandell, Beaverton police spokesman. The older girl allegedly was abused at Robinson's house, and police are still investigating which police agency has jurisdiction over the other alleged incident.

Police began investigating in mid-February after both girls told their parents, who contacted authorities.
