SAO PAULO (AP) - Police are investigating a Roman Catholic priest for alleged sexual abuse of three young girls in his parish in southeastern Brazil.

A police spokeswoman says Father Emilson Soares Correa is under investigation for committing the abuse in Niteroi, a city across Guanabara Bay from Rio de Janeiro. She declined to be identified in accordance with department policy.

The priest has been temporarily suspended during the investigation.

The spokeswoman said Wednesday that one of the girls, now a 19-year-old woman, claims the abuse started when she was 13.

She says that last year the woman and a 15-year-old friend videotaped a man they said was the priest having sexual intercourse with them.

Correa is also being investigated for allegedly sexual fondling the woman's now 10-year-old sister three years ago.
