A priest charged with sexually assaulting a parishioner is on trial.

Father Bothdan Borowic of Canada listened as the woman he allegedly attacked testified. She says it happened at the church.

“I was on my toes, I was not flat on my feet. I was sort of picked up towards him, but I thought it was going to be a goodbye. It wasn’t. He proceeded to bury his face into my nape of my neck and at the same time kissing me. Then he grabbed my right buttocks and he was squeezing it in a very sexual manner,” the victim testified.

The woman says she never gave Borowic permission to touch her.

Borowic is free on $75,000 bail. The trial will continue on Thursday.
