According to police, a Raton priest has been arrested on accusations of sexual abuse.

On Thursday, police arrested Father George Silva, a priest at Saint Patrick Church and Saint Joseph Church in Raton.

Police said the allegations of abuse extend from June 2005.

Action 7 News spoke with a handful of parishioners and received mixed responses.

George Dominguez said he has a lot of doubt after the arrest.

"I don't know what to say about that," Dominguez said. "I feel a little betrayed by him I guess."
