A convicted sex offender has been arrested again, accused of posing as a Catholic clergyman and molesting a teenage boy in Daly City.

Investigators say 72-year-old Anthony Thomas Falco has a history of pretending to be a friar.

They say he recently tricked Catholic parishioners in Minnesota, and a decade ago he was convicted of molesting a 15-year-old Aptos boy on a church trip to Bosnia.

Police say Falco has been staying with a Daly City family for several months. They thought he was a Franciscan monk.
