New Jersey state police have arrested a Trenton pastor on charges of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy the pastor allegedly met in Philadelphia.

Charles Brinson, 48, who leads the Brinson Memorial Church and is also associated with other churches, was arrested on Saturday in Trenton after police officers found him in his church's van.

Philadelphia police had issued arrest warrants for Brinson alleging that, earlier this year, Brinson picked the boy up in Philadelphia, then drove the boy to Brinson's home in Florence, Burlington County.

Brinson, who police said uses the title of "bishop" in his church, was charged with felony solicitation, felony contact with a minor and misdemeanor corruption of a minor, among other charges.

Authorities are seeking information about any other possible victims of Brinson. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Mercer County prosecutor's office at (609)989-6415 or the Burlington County prosecutor's office at (609)265-5879.
