A Roman Catholic priest has been arrested for allegedly fondling two sisters repeatedly over a four-year period in Fontana. Police say the Reverend Honesto Bismonte was arrested at his home and booked for investigation of continuous sexual abuse of a minor. Bismonte is an associate pastor at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Pomona.

Sergeant Robert Beltran says detectives were told that the girls, now ages 13 and 17, were abused between 1997 and 2001.
