A Downriver pastor accused of sexually assaulting an underage boy is scheduled to be arraigned on criminal sexual conduct charges Monday afternoon.
River Rouge Police Chief Robert Alderman said the Rev. Russel Schaller, 35, is facing six charges of third-degree CSC charges for having inappropriate contact with the boy.
Schaller is the senior pastor at Greater St. Johns Missionary Baptist Church on Chalmers Street in Detroit. He is a resident of River Rouge.
"If you're familiar with the Rev. Schaller, talk to your kids, see how familiar they are or if they're victims," Alderman said. "If they are, come forward."
