A Bronxville priest is under arrest and accused of inappropriately touching a 10-year-old child at school earlier this year.

Officials say Kreiser touched a child on an intimate part of her body while in a school building on Sept. 20.

At the time of the alleged incident, Kreiser was employed as a Roman Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of New York and was stationed at St. Joseph’s Parish. As part of his duties, he was visiting the school at the time of the incident.
