FORT COLLINS - A Catholic priest removed from his large parish three years ago assaulted two boys and one young man over a period of several years, according to an arrest affidavit released Monday.
The Rev. Timothy Evans, 43, first assaulted a parishioner's son at Spirit of Christ Church in Arvada in 1996, according to the affidavit.

Evans then moved to the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Fort Collins in 1998 where, the affidavit says, he assaulted another boy in 1999 and a young man in 2000.

None of the assaults was reported to the archdiocese or police until 2002. Evans was removed from his duties at the Fort Collins parish that year.
