St. Paul priest investigated for abuse allegations

ST. PAUL — 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 says the archdiocese told parishioners about the allegations over the weekend.
