NEW MILFORD – A defrocked priest once accused of asking a child if he wanted oral sex as a confirmation gift is on the run from the New York City Police Department.

The New York Daily News reported Saturday that Bruce Jacques, 57, is wanted for allegedly sexually assaulting a student at the Robert Louis Stevenson School, a private school for children with emotional and learning problems off Central Park West in Manhattan.

A student at the school accused Jacques of molesting him in Central Park Oct. 20, the News reported.

In an interview with the newspaper, the school's headmaster said Jacques was hired as director of development at the school two years ago with solid references – but no mention of his troubles in New Milford.
