Man accused of attacking priest makes allegation of his own

A Minnesota man charged with attacking a Priest in North Dakota Accused the reverend during a bond hearing of raping a woman, an allegation the Catholic Diocese of Fargo says has no merit.

Forty-two-year-old Chad Legare of Alexandria, Minnesota, is accused of assaulting Rev. Robert Wapenski Jan. 30 at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Anamoose. Authorities haven’t discussed a motive.

KXMC-TV reports Legare appeared in court Thursday on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and burglary. A judge set bond at $250,000. Legare during the hearing made a reference to the priest being a rapist.

Diocese officials said in a statement they’d been informed of Legare’s allegations and reached out to the alleged victim, and the woman denied the allegations.

The county sheriff and state’s attorney declined comment.
