Two People Vandalise the St. John's Church in Miltenberg

Country: Germany

Date of incident: January 4, 2023

It was reported that two young people vandalised St. John's Church on the 4th of January. They left traces of foam from the fire extinguisher all over the church and special items. The sacristan came to the church right after the incident happened and reported the crime. A cleaning crew tried to remove the foam, textiles and other valuable Paramentes also had to be cleaned. It seems that the Altar Bible has suffered permanent damage. The police are investigating.

The incident has been reported to the police, who have taken up the case. 

The news outlet that reported the incident mentioned that other smaller forms of vandalism had taken place in recent weeks: wax was poured out and the Easter candle was damaged.
