CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Venezuelan police say they have arrested a teenager and seek another for the slaying of a 79-year-old priest and 84-year-old lay worker in the city of Valencia.

Judicial police director Jose Gregorio Sierralta tells Union Radio that the youths regularly went to the Don Bosco school for sports activities, and had stayed inside Saturday before allegedly stabbing the two men, as well as another priest who survived.

The Salesian school's director is the Rev. Fernando Santana, who says the youths took cellular phones, computers and some money before killing the religious workers.

A 17-year-old was arrested the next day and a 14-year-old was being sought Monday.
