NEW BRITAIN - Police arrested a New Britain priest Tuesday after an investigation revealed that he may have had sexual contact with a 12-year-old female last May.

Krikoris Keshishian, 53, of 21 Garry Drive, was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to or impairing the morals of a child by sexual contact.
According to the Police Department, Keshishian, who serves as priest of St. Stephen's Armenian Church on Tremont Street in New Britain, had been investigated by the Youth Division of the Detective Bureau for an alleged incident that took place in May 2005.
