August 15, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico church known for welcoming LGBTQ residents and immigrants has been vandalized three times in a week.

KRQE-TV reports the Metropolitan Community Church in Albuquerque is working to repair hundreds of dollars in damage following the attacks.

Pastor Judith Maynard says the vandalism started Aug. 7 when someone broke a door window. She says after the door window was fixed, someone broke another window in the same door the next day.

On Tuesday, vandals struck again, breaking the window of another door and shattering a double-pane window inside.

No arrests have been made.

The Christian church has been at the same location for 18 years and it has reported only a few minor episodes in its history.
