A Spartanburg County pastor has been arrested and accused of sexually abusing a teenage girl.

Robert Thomas Norris,27, of Roebuck was charged Monday night with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. The warrant said the girl said she was abused between August 2012 and January. She said she was 16 when the abuse started.

Lt. Kevin Bobo said a school official in Woodruff reported that the girl said she had been touched and kissed inappropriately by a relative. They then talked to the girls' mother and boyfriend.

It was not clear if Norris has a lawyer. 

Lieutenant Kevin Bobo of the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said that Norris is the pastor at The Church, located at 1855 East Main in Spartanburg.
