In September 1911, some robbers got a surprise they definitely weren’t counting on when they attempted to rob a priest in Baltimore.
According to a wire story in The Frederick Post:
“After they threatened his life unless he gave them money, Father Brown, of St. Mary’s church overpowered thugs and locked them in his kitchen until the police arrived.”
Guess they picked the wrong priest to rob.
