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.
