A man named Jesus has been arrested after he destroyed a church’s antique stained glass window with a stone.
Jesus Jose Arellano was charged with injury to real property for using a foot-long sandstone rock to hack through 6 inches of plexiglass to reach the stained glass window at Grace Moravian Church, North Carolina, United States, Monday night, WXII 12 reported.
About 2 square feet of the 30-foot stained glass window, which dates back to 1925, was destroyed from Arellano’s vandalism, the outlet said.
Cops found Arellano lurking in a nearby cemetery the next day and arrested him, the outlet reported.
Neil Ruth, the church’s pastor, said Grace Moravian is a symbol of kindness in the community and found it bizarre that anyone would do such. He also added that the church is worried about the state of mind of such a person.
Speaking about the congregation, Ruth said:
“Their biggest concern is who would be this demented and upset to so directly deface the image of Jesus. So their main concern is to pray for that person.”
It was not immediately clear if anything was stolen or what Arellano’s motive for the vandalism was.
