Vandals use chainsaw to swipe sign from tiny church

| September 1, 2011

A tiny church for Ethiopian immigrants in Hammonds Plains has been hit again by vandals, the latest incident involving their sign being cut down with a chainsaw.

There have been two or three minor occurrences of vandalism since St. Gebriel Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church opened more than a year ago, but the latest one has gone too far, said Deacon Les Zewdie.

At around 10:30 p.m. Monday night, police say several people got out of a van and revved up a chainsaw. They cut down the church’s sign, threw it in the back of the van and took off.

“This is the limit and there is a red line … We’ve been very patient for these things for a long period of time, but at this time we are not hesitating to make sure legal actions are taking place,” Zewdie said yesterday.

He said he has his suspicions of who did it, but wouldn’t say because an investigation is underway.
