According to a police report, the incident happened around 3 a.m. last Thursday morning (Jan 13, 2011).
The police report indicates that a SHARE resident told the police officer that he heard a window break as he was sleeping inside the church. ”When he got up to investigate,” the report reads, “he heard some rustling around in the office on the south side of the building. [He] stated it sounded as if there was someone in the office stepping on glass. At this point [he] pounded on the door and the noise stopped. He listed [sic] for a few minutes and did not hear anything. The room where the noise was coming from was locked and had no other point of entry into the church. [He] did not want to go outside to check the window for fear of confrontation.”
The SHARE resident alerted a staff member of the church, who then called 911.
Pastor Andersen says that no property was stolen and the broken window was promptly repaired.
“Bethany’s staff and members are grateful for the prompt response of SHARE residents and their care of the property and grounds of the church,” said the pastor.
