During the celebration of an online mass, on Wednesday night, 15, in São Leopoldo (Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil), a group of believers were assaulted and Father Ramiro Mincato asked for help over the internet: ‘send the police here . We’re being mugged ’. ‘They were signaling me to shut up, but I didn’t understand. I thought they were beggars. It took a while to get the plug. When I saw them signaling to others, as if they wanted to show something under their clothes, I realized what was happening ’, Mincato told GaúchaZH. The priest managed to hold the computer that was being used to broadcast the celebration.
‘I managed to hold on, I took a pedestal, in case he came over me, but he gave up and the two ran away. The pain that remains is that of the people who lost the objects. One of the cell phones taken is that of a church secretary, who bought a good device to facilitate calls, was still paying. So much sacrifice for her to get, and they take it like this ’, he revealed. T
he criminals took two cell phones and a car key.
