FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Crooks are forcing local churches to change the way they operate. The latest victims are parishioners at St. John's Cathedral in downtown Fresno.
The closure is brand new this week after a man kicked down a 110-year-old door inside the cathedral. Valley Catholics are outraged by the crime, especially since the man was caught on camera walking into a sacred room.
Security cameras caught a man repeatedly kicking at the door to the sacristy inside St. John's Cathedral on October 23. In the video, the man pauses after a few attempts then finally breaks through the door destroying a piece of cathedral history.
