SALEM -- A Woodburn priest facing sex abuse charges is being held without bail after a judge called him a threat to children.

Father Angel Perez was being held without bail in the Marion County Jail after a release hearing Monday.

Police arrested him last week after a boy staying with Perez said he was fondled. He said he had run away from Perez to find help.

The boy was found by neighbors who said Perez was running after him.

Perez was put on leave from his position at St. Luke's Catholic Church.
