St. Paul Police are appealing to the public as their investigation into the conduct of a local priest continues.

Police announced Thursday that based on their current and previous investigations, they're asking anyone who may have been a victim of sexual abuse perpetrated by members of the Catholic Church to come forward and report what happened.

Investigators would not comment on what sparked their plea to the public. But earlier this month the department reopened an investigation into allegations that a priest once had child porn on his computer.

Also this month, in an unrelated case, an alleged victim sued Father Michael Keating, accusing the University of St. Thomas priest of inappropriate sexual contact with a young girl.
