NEW YORK (WABC) -- The NYPD arrested two people following disturbing incidents at Catholic churches in Brooklyn and Queens.
At Resurrection Church in Gerritsen Beach, a marble statue of Mary was vandalized with spray paint.
A 37-year-old man was arrested and charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime.
At St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church in Astoria, a man was arrested after he allegedly entered the sanctuary and frightened the children in the youth choir.
The Diocese of Brooklyn believes this is the same person who desecrated the church last month.
