Police: Man charged attack on Mennonites
LANCASTER — Police in central Pennsylvania have charged a 22-year-old man with attacking three elderly Mennonite women because of their faith.
Authorities say Mr. Holt posed as an insurance salesman to gain entrance to the victims’ home in Clay Township on Friday.
Police say he tied up the women, who are sisters, and assaulted them with a stun gun while raging against their religion. The victims are between 84 and 90 years old.
Police Chief David Steffen says he’s pursuing the attack as a hate crime. He plans to hold a news conference Monday.
Mr. Holt has no fixed address and is being held on $1 million bail. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
