Visiting Priest Accused Of Raping Suburban Woman


GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Ill. -- A Roman Catholic priest from Poland is accused of raping a 24-year-old woman in her bedroom at a home where he was staying.

The Rev. Tadeusz Ulman, 45, is charged with criminal sexual conduct, DuPage County State's Attorney Joseph Birkett said. He was arrested Monday morning after the woman reported the alleged attack had happened early that day.

"He was invited into a home and he took advantage of that," Birkett said.

Ulman remained in DuPage County Jail early Friday morning with bail set at $500,000. Jail officials did not know if he had an attorney.

Ulman did not come to the Chicago area on official church business, said John Cullen, a spokesman for the Joliet Diocese.
