(WJZ) Odenton, Md. Anne Arundel County Police and the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services say a 12-year-old boy has accused associate pastor of an Essex-area church of fondling him.

Police say an investigation revealed that 28-year-old Enoch Hill, of 2104 Peaceful Way in Odenton, sexually abused the victim during six different encounters. On April 4, the boy reported the abuse, telling detectives it began when he visited Hill's home a year ago.

Lieutenant David Waltemeyer, a police spokesman, tells WJZ's Kai Jackson that Hill was arrested and booked Tuesday after he turned himself into police.
