Arrest made in Newark nun attack
Police arrested 52 year-old Calvin Battle Friday for allegedly kicking and punching a nun and stealing her laptop computer.
Battle has nearly three dozen arrests and 12 felony convictions for robbery, burglary, and theft-related offenses. He is charged with aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, theft, and criminal mischief.
Jim Goodness, a spokesman for the Archdiocese of Newark, said the intruder entered the convent and forced his way into the nun?s apartment. Goodness says he's never heard of a nun being attacked in all his years at the church and finds it hard to fathom someone doing it.
