A 17-year-old boy who sought to desecrate a church by placing an image depicting Satan, has been arrested and charge.

Not only did the teen placed the image there, he also allegedly set fires in several places within the Church.

Fortunately, none of the fires impacted the building since each one that was set, did not flame for more than a few minutes.

The incident which occurred at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Regent Road, Great Yarmouth (UK), has since caused the Church’s membership to continue their calls for greater protection of the church.

They lamented their concerns at the nature of the attack, and age range of the attacker, which they say signal the mindset of the current generation.

The teen has since been placed on bail, and is awaiting trial.
