CHICAGO (WBBM Newsradio 780) -- Yet another boy has come forward to say he was molested by a priest from St. Agatha's Catholic Church on the West Side.

Sources tell Newsradio 780 that the boy is 11 years old.

His attorney Jeff Anderson says he took the boy and his parents to talk with investigators from the Cook County State's Attorney's office.

And that office confirms that.

This centers on accusations by the boy that Father Daniel McCormack molested him - more than once - in the past two years.

Anderson read a statement from the boy's mother.

"My son is hurting now. but he has told me that Father Dan has hurt him more than one time."

The archdiocese says this is the first it's heard of these allegations.

McCormack was charged earlier this month with molesting two boys at St. Agatha's, at Kedzie and Douglas Boulevard.
