Warning: Extremely Disturbing Content – Sensitive Readers Should Go No Further
A male suspect broke into St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Marietta on Christmas night, disturbed the Nativity Scene, and performed lewd acts. Unbeknownst to him, this behavior was caught on surveillance video. Charges have been filed and the suspect is in custody on a parole violation.
Sources tell RCNN the suspect was dressed like a woman when he broke into the church at 401 Scammel Street at midnight on Christmas. Sgt. Katie Warden said the suspect “performed a sex act on himself with church property.” And, this he did after placing bathroom mirrors so he could observe his actions.
The suspect, who is a registered sex offender, admitted to the crime under questioning. The charges against him are misdemeanors because he did not steal anything. However, further charges may be forthcoming.
