A Buddhist monk accused of molesting two children in 2000-2002 has been arrested in Nevada and extradited back to Chicago, reports the Chicago Sun Times.

Authorities say the crimes took place at the Wat Phrasriratanamahatatu Buddhist Temple in the Sheridan Park neighborhood in the Windy City.

The Chicago Tribune reports that bail has been set at $20,000.

The temple has not responded to requests for comment.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Special Investigations Unit at 312-492-3810.
