PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh says a clergyman awaiting trial on charges he molested four students 30 years ago at a school in Australia is the subject of a "credible" allegation of abuse from when he taught at the city's North Catholic High School.

The Rev. Ronald Lengwin, spokesman for the diocese, tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (http://bit.ly/1i44vzj ) that the complaint against Marianist Brother Bernard Hartman has been turned over to authorities.

Lengwin says a former student at the school, since renamed Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School, came forward as the diocese was preparing a letter to North Catholic alumni about the Australian charges.

Hartman is accused of molesting two males and two females at St. Paul's College in Melbourne.

He taught biology at North Catholic briefly in 1961 and 1970, and then from 1986-97.
