Police in the Saginaw area have arrested a 71-year-old Roman Catholic priest who is accused of sexual assault.
Jail records show the Rev. Robert DeLand was arrested Monday. He’s the pastor at St. Agnes Church in Freeland.
Police say they’ve received several complaints since August alleging assault, gross indecency, alcohol for a minor and possession of the Ecstasy drug.
No charges have been filed, although the Saginaw County prosecutor is reviewing police reports.
An email seeking comment was sent to the Catholic Diocese in Saginaw.
