Vandals target Delco church

From Pennsylvania (with video)

Caution tape lined the steps that lead up to Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church in Clifton Heights on Wednesday.

For 140 years St. Stephen's has been serving parishioners, and there had never been a problem with vandalism until now.

Tuesday afternoon vandals knocked down a heavy wrought iron railing, taking pieces of the slate steps with it.

Wilcy Moore is a parishioner, treasurer and volunteer groundskeeper at St. Stephen's.

"Sure I'm upset," he told Action News. "We've been trying to dress the front of the church up to make it look great."

Moore says whoever did this had to work at it.

"One person couldn't have done it," he said. "It would have taken a group of people rocking it back and forth."
