Cumberland County Sheriff's detectives have charged a former Fayetteville youth minister with sex crimes involving two teenage girls.

Deputies arrested 26-year-old Brandon Christopher Bradley, of 635 Bessemer Circle, Friday morning.

He is charged with seven counts of statutory rape, five counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor, one count of sexual offense, and one count of crimes against nature.

All the charges are felonies.

Investigators say Bradley engaged in sexual activities with two girls who were 14-years-old at the time of the encounters. Bradley allegedly forced the girls to perform sexual acts with him against their will between August 2008 and October 2008 in his home.

ABC11 generally does not identify the victims of sex crimes.

Bradley was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center.
