Loud clanging noises woke a 59-year-old man from Billerbeck from his sleep on Saturday night (around 3.30 a.m.). He looked out of the window (facing the church square) but could not see anyone because of the darkness. He only heard two voices moving away in the direction of Lange Street. The next morning he noticed that the glass weather protection of the “Saint Anthony” ( statue) had been smashed and reported this to the sexton in charge of St. John’s Church.

Information to the police in Coesfeld by calling 02541-140.
