#BreakingNews Catholic Priest attacked in Poland before an evening Mass

A Catholic priest was attacked in Poland.  Prosecutors are investigating after a Roman Catholic priest was attacked and injured in the northwestern Polish city of Szczecin, according to media reports. Fr. Aleksander Ziejewski was attacked by three men shortly before an evening Mass at St. John the Baptists Basilica in Szczecin, northwestern Poland, on Sunday. Fr.

The clergyman, Fr. Aleksander Ziejewski, suffered a facial injury as a result of the incident on Sunday. Three suspects were detained by police within an hour-and-a-half of the attack; they are aged from 27 to 53 and have a previous police record.
 Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki condemned the attack in a Twitter post on Monday. "There can be no consent to acts of aggression,” Morawiecki said. He added that “the beating of the priest and an attempt to desecrate Holy Mass in Szczecin deserve special condemnation from all sides, regardless of political views.” Last month, a Catholic priest was rushed to a hospital after being stabbed by a knifeman in the southwestern Polish city of Wrocław.
