Authorities in the northern Mexican state of San Luis Potosi have arrested a Roman Catholic priest on suspicion of sexually abusing a minor, the second priest charged there in a week.
State investigative police say Friday's arrest of Guillermo Gil Torres was based on a complaint from the boy's grandmother, who said the child became noticeably sad and nervous and asked never to be sent to church.
The incidents started in November when Gil Torres, pastor of Santa Rosa de Lima church, invited the boy to look at photographs of his travels and allegedly began rubbing his legs, police said according to testimony from the family.
The Archdiocese of San Luis Potosi did not answer telephone calls or emails seeking comment on Saturday. Mexican media reported that Gil Torres had been suspended last month when the complaint was filed.
He was arrested while driving in the capital city, also called San Luis Potosi, where the church is located.
