HOUSTON -- A group of priests sleeping inside a southwest Houston church woke up as a man broke into their building early Friday.
One of the priests at St. Mary’s Knanaya Catholic Church on W. Fuqua said the break-in happened in the early-morning hours.
They turned on a TV with a security camera to see what was going on.
“We had a prayer meeting yesterday evening, and then we went to bed about 11 o’clock,” he said. “Then this morning around 2:13 we heard somebody hitting the door. We woke up, and we noticed on the TV – somebody was in front of my office room. Then I called the police, and he ran away.”
Police said an HDTV was taken from the church’s front lobby.
An investigation is underway.
