WOONSOCKET â On the run from the police, a stolen SUV slammed into the granite entryway of St. Charles Barromeo Church Wednesday, causing a staggering amount of damage.
âItâs really shocking,â said Rev. Gerald L. Finnegan, the pastor. âI thought the building was impregnable. Itâs stone. Granite. I thought it would last forever.â
Police arrested 18-year-old Jalen Asean Abney on one count of possession of a stolen motor vehicle. He was captured after a foot chase that began following the crash, but two others escaped, including one individual Abney claims was driving.
