Priest Beats Up Would-Be Robbers

Time to "enforce" the Gospel...

From - Foxlife - Out There - Priest Beats Up Would-Be Robbers:

"Father Matt Foley ran in and grabbed the man's tools, but the crook fought back, and the tussle wandered into the street, then a nearby alley.
'He had threatened me that he had a knife,' Foley told the TV station. 'I had to physically keep his hand away from the knife so I wouldn't be harmed. So I put him basically in a half-nelson and held him to the ground.'

Two men who had gotten free meals at the church were arrested.

Growing up with four brothers and two sisters taught him how to fight, Foley explained, adding that he was ready to risk his life again for the sake of the church's money."
