Another man has come forward, talking only with Action News, claiming he too was abused by an Episcopal priest.

Last week we told you 79-year-old Ralph Johnson resigned from the priesthood. It followed a five month investigation into allegations he sexually abused a boy in the 1970s.

After watching our report, another man says he was also abused by Johnson years ago.

"Memories came flooding back. I had tried to put this out of my mind for years," said the Montrose man, who does not want to be identified.
