PRAGUE, Czech Republic—Czech police say they have arrested a Roman Catholic priest suspected of sexually abusing a teenage girl and raping a woman.

Police spokeswoman Dana Cirtkova says the 52-year-old suspect allegedly abused a 13-year-old girl for producing pornography. No further details were given because of the girl’s age.

Cirtkova said Monday the priest is also suspected of raping a 37-year-old woman four times late last year.

The priest is from the town of Havlickuv Brod, 120 kilometers southeast of Prague. If tried and convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.
