Police are searching for a shirtless man who vandalized a church statue in Brooklyn not once - but twice. The man knocked over the effigy of St. Francis at Blessed Sacrament Church in Cypress Hill on Halloween evening and again on November 11th.
The victim, Abul Deh says he doesn't know his attackers and just moved to the area from West Africa. He says the money was to open a restaurant in Manhattan. Deh says he doesn't have a bank account, so that is why he was carrying the money.
