Truth Is Stranger #117: Saint Statue Stops Thief

It's true:

The man suffered a nasty cut to the head and fled the St Benno Church without the donation box, said Ludwig Sperrer, the church’s priest.

He said it seemed that the near-life-size statue of Saint Antonius had fallen from its wooden plinth as the would-be thief was trying to break open the donation box which was situated in the same wooden structure.
Way to go, St. Antonius!
