The Rev. Daniel McCormack returned Friday night to the Chicago Police station he has visited before -- again to surrender to authorities as even more sex abuse charges were filed this week against him.

McCormack, accompanied by his attorney, surrendered to police at Harrison Area headquarters on two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, involving two youngsters ages 10 and 11, said John Gorman, a spokesman for the Cook County state's attorney's office .

McCormack was jailed overnight and scheduled to appear in Bond Court at 26th and California today at noon.

In April, Chicago Police presented prosecutors with allegations that McCormack molested three more children. Those allegations are similar to the ones in a previous case for which McCormack already faces charges, a law enforcement source had said in April.

This latest case involves only two victims, Gorman said.
