OMAHA, Neb. – Video posted by a priest at a Nebraska church is going viral for a brutal attack on a 72-year-old woman.

Two videos were posted Tuesday on Facebook by Father James Netusil at St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha.

According to Father Netusil’s post, this past Sunday morning at about 11:00am, a 72-year-old woman went into the church and stood reading a copy of the parish newsletter.  Two black men came in the church behind her.  One grabbed her purse from her arm and ran.  The other slugged on the side of the head, knocking her down.  The woman then hit her head against the table.  The second one then also ran from the church.

The woman was taken to the hospital for her injuries.
