Sydney priest charged with sexually touching two women

A Sydney priest has been charged with sexually touching two women, including at least one incident at a church.

NSW Police said detectives began investigating in July after two women, aged 22 and 45, alleged they had been sexually touched on multiple occasions by a man known to them.

Police arrested a 33-year-old man at a home in Mays Hill on September 1 and he was charged with seven counts of aggravated sexually touching another person.

It’s alleged the incidents occurred at a home in Bankstown and a church at Mangrove on the NSW Central Coast while the man was undertaking duties as a priest between August 2019 and February 2020.

He was granted conditional bail and is due to face Bankstown Local Court on Thursday.

Police said inquiries were continuing.
