Retired priest arrested over child sex abuse allegations

THE Royal Commission into Child Sex Abuse in the Catholic Church has continued to prompt NSW victims to come forward decades after alleged offences occurred.

As recently as Tuesday night, a retired priest was arrested at Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains over allegations he indecently assaulted a number of boys in the 70s and 80s.

The 70-year-old was granted conditional bail and will front a Penrith court on July 29.

Detectives from Strike Force Nemesis are continuing to investigate claims made in the wake of the royal commission.

Anyone with information can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
