A 53-year-old priest was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a young woman in his own home.

Jose Davila, a priest at St. Jude’s Church in Southcrest, was visited at home by the 20-year-old victim whom he had known for several months, according to police. While alone with Davila in his home, the victim was allegedly sexually assaulted.

She returned home and reported the assault to her family and police.

Sex Crimes Unit detectives interviewed the victim and Davila, who was compliant with the investigation. He voluntarily turned himself in on Sunday.
