Cops: 2 Massachusetts Women Charged with Stealing Nun’s Rosary Beads
Two Massachusetts women have been charged with robbing a Roman Catholic nun of her rosary beads at knifepoint.
The nun, a member of The Daughters of Mary of Nazareth Convent, was walking down the street dressed in secular clothing Sunday at 2 p.m. when one woman approached her and tried to take her bag, Mass Live reported.
The nun told Vanessa Young, 26, that she didn’t have any money but did notice that Young allegedly had a knife in her hand, police told The Boston Globe.
The nun opened her bag and showed Young the contents of her purse: rosary beads, a key, and a small token.
Vanessa Young took the contents of her purse while Crystal Young stood guard, The Globe reported.
