An arrest warrant has been issued for a former Texas priest accused of molesting teenagers more than a decade ago, after a new alleged victim came forward.

Edmundo Paredes is believed to have fled Texas after sexual assault allegations involving three teenagers were made public in August.


The Dallas Morning News reports that Dallas Catholic Diocese officials have said they believe Paredes may have returned to his native, the Philippines.
