A husband and wife have accused a Roman Catholic priest of sexually assaulting her and are suing the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for allegedly allowing him to flee to Poland, their attorney said on Wednesday.

The Pennsylvania couple say the abuse took place in 2012 at Our Lady of Czestochowa, a shrine and retreat house run by the Pauline Fathers monastic order in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where the wife had gone for counseling, according to the lawsuit.
