Naperville police investigate vandalism to statue of Jesus outside Catholic church

[Source] August 29, 2008:

Naperville police are investigating an act of vandalism at a Catholic church near downtown.

Police said a man in his 20s pushed over a 4-foot-tall marble statue of Jesus that stood outside the Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church on Monday night. When the statue tumbled, its head broke off, police said.

The statue was valued at $4,000.

Frank Partipilo, facilities manager at the church, 36 N. Ellsworth St., said the statue has been repaired.

This is the second time the church has been vandalized in three months. In May, someone stole a statue of the Virgin Mary from the lawn of the church. That statue has not been recovered. The 2-foot-tall, white plaster statue was valued at $700.
