The priest who is accused of inappropriately touching a child is back in Kansas City.  

Authorities brought Father Scott Kallal from Maryland to the Wyandotte County Jail.  

Kallal is charged with two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Police arrested him in Maryland. The Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas said Kallal agreed to undergo an evaluation and counseling in Maryland.

A man who claims his daughter was sexually assaulted by Kallal alleged Kallal inappropriately touched his daughter during a gathering at St. Patrick Catholic Church in 2015.

In July, the church suspended Kallal from the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Overland Park.
