A 47-year-old homeless man has been charged in a sexual battery case involving two young boys, according to Spartanburg police arrest reports.

Reports state Gerald Bluford was arrested Friday after a weeks-long investigation.

Police said they were called to Cleveland Elementary School on March 25 after a 6-year-old boy told school officials he was being sexually abused.

The child claimed that his 9-year-old brother was also being abused by Bluford, according to reports.

Reports state the abuse happened in the children's home, where the suspect was staying, between September 2011 and March 2014.

Bluford was charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor under 11 years of age.

Bluford is currently being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
