Reverend accused of child rape

Local News

A Philadelphia priest accused of raping and sexually abusing a child was arrested this week.
Police say Armand Garcia committed that abuse between 2014 and 2017.

We’re told Reverend Garcia has been a part of a criminal investigation for a year but parents just learned about the allegations against him Tuesday. Some parents say they feel like it was hidden from the school and the parishioners.

Garcia was placed on administrative leave last March when police began their investigation. The Archdiocese of Philadelphia is calling the allegations serious and disturbing.
