At least six burglaries have been committed at a church in Fairfax County in the past two months, and in one of them a church member was attacked with a fire extinguisher, the county police said.
In addition to the six burglaries, police said, they are investigating a seventh incident, classified only as a destruction of property. Four of the burglaries also included destruction of property, the police said.
In the fire extinguisher incident, the police said, the victim was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.
No explanation for the incidents was immediately available.
On its website, the church said it “welcomes and embraces all God’s children.”
