CBS Boston – Police say 26-year-old Vanessa Young had the knife and struggled with the nun, while her spouse, 26-year-old Crystal Young acted as a lookout.
The nun noticed the suspect was holding a small knife, and opened the satchel to show her that there was no money inside, just rosary beads, a key and a small memento.
“I guess I’ll take the rosary beads,” the suspect said.
The nun was able to get back to her convent safely. She was wearing civilian clothing at the time of the robbery.
