Police hunt priest in sex assault case

‘Police officers were searching for a Roman Catholic priest they believe may have sexually assaulted and struck a woman at a Las Vegas, Nevada, church.

Authorities said they were called to Our Lady of Las Vegas Catholic Church on Friday evening by someone who heard a woman in the church cry for help.

Officers found a church employee who said she had been assaulted and hit in the head with an object by a priest. Investigators consider the Rev. George Chaanine a person of interest, police spokesman Bill Cassell said.’
