Nun Attack Might Be Linked To Burglary

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

There are new developments in the assault of two Billings nuns early Wednesday morning. Billings Police said Wednesday evening the crime might be linked to another home invasion Tuesday.

Billing Police Lieutenant Kevin Iffland said Wednesday evening the nun attacks could be related to a robbery at midnight Tuesday, in the 100 block of 11th Street West. In a statement, Iffland said a 76-year-old female awoke to noise in her living room. She told police she saw a male in the living room, who threw her to the floor.

The victim, Iffland said, suffered no major injuries, and was reportedly not taken to the hospital.

Billings Police released photos of the person or persons of interest in the robbery. Iffland said they allegedly stole credit cards, along with several items, from the home. The credit cards were reportedly used.

Meanwhile the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, to which the attacked nuns belong to, released a statement on the attack. Sister Maureen Hall said the organization is saddened by the assault on the two nuns, and that they are grateful for the support from St. Vincent Healthcare and the Billings Community. They are also asking for continued prayers for the two nuns, as well as for the individuals who broke into their home.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 245-6660.
