ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has relieved a priest of his duties while police investigate allegations of abuse.
 
St. Paul police arrested 47-year-old Curtis Wehmeyer, of Oakdale, after a juvenile male told investigators he had been assaulted over a two-year period. Wehmeyer has not been charged with a crime. He served as pastor at the Parish of the Blessed Sacrament on St. Paul's east side.
 
The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/MUH3EF) says the archdiocese told parishioners about the allegations over the weekend.
