RCMP in Newfoundland and Labrador say a 62-year-old Toronto resident faces four sex-related charges involving a child that allegedly occurred in the 1990s.

The Mounties say the offences occurred in Badger, N.L., where Anthony Hageman was serving as a priest in the Roman Catholic Church at the time.

Police say they received a complaint last August from a person who reported being sexually assaulted at the age of seven.
