Exorcism priest gets attacked

Posted by jtsmyth8 on August 25, 2008

1 of the two Catholic priests embroiled in a lawsuit concerning an ‘exorcism’ on a woman was attacked by a woman during a service at the Novena Church on Saturday.

In front of a packed congregation, the woman ran up the aisle to the altar where Father Simon Tan, 45, was standing and used her black handbag to hit the priest’s arms and shoulders.

The attack lasted just a few seconds. The woman managed to get a few swings at Father Simon before a younger woman ran up to pull her aside, with the help of several churchgoers.

Witnesses described the attacker as tanned, slim and wearing jeans and a turquoise polo T-shirt. (story)
