A CATHOLIC priest in Sydney’s inner west has been charged with the historical indecent assault of a teenage boy.
Last year a strike force was established to investigate allegations a teenage boy had been abused at a Croydon parish in 2005, police said.
A Catholic priest, 38, was arrested and charged with aggravated indecent assault.
Conditional bail was granted and he’s due at Burwood Local Court on February 20.
Police would not say how old the boy was at the time of the offences.
