MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Minnesota priest accused of sexually assaulting two young girls is sitting in a jail, in India Sunday morning.

Fifty-seven-year-old Rev. Joseph Jeyapaul allegedly committed the crimes in the Diocese of Crookston in 2004.

According to the Times of India, he’s expected to appear in a New Delhi court Sunday.

Back in September, the Crookston Diocese agreed to pay $750,000 in a lawsuit settlement to a victim allegedly raped when she was 14 years old.

Jeyapaul was tracked down by Interpol. He has denied the allegations.
