WINNIPEG – A second former altar boy has testified about alleged sexual abuse by an Orthodox priest in Winnipeg.

The man, who cannot be identified under a publication ban, says he lived with Seraphim Storheim for two weeks in the summer of 1985.

The man, who was 11 at the time, says Storheim would frequently walk around naked, and sometimes lie naked on the floor and touch himself.

The man also says Storheim at one point asked to be touched sexually.

The man’s brother gave similar testimony Monday.

Storheim, a top cleric in the Orthodox Church in America, has pleaded not guilty to two charges of sexually assaulting the brothers.
