MIDDLESEX, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A former youth pastor was charged with repeatedly sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy years ago.

Jeffrey Mackintosh, 46, of Phillipsburg faces sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child charges.

Mackintosh was arrested after the alleged victim – now an adult – approached the Perth Amboy Police Department this month.

Investigators believe Mackintosh assaulted the boy during the year 2000 when he was a youth pastor at Glad Tidings Assembly of God Church.

The assaults allegedly took place in a private room in the church, which has since moved, and the original building has been demolished.

Mackintosh has not been associated with that church since 2004.

Officials are still investigating the case. They ask anyone with any information to call the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3600 or Perth Amboy Police at (732) 442-4400.
