From the Catholic Herald:
A Byzantine Catholic priest was attacked on Monday in the sacristy of his church. The priest, Father Basil Hutsko, suffered a concussion in the attack at St Michael Church, in Merrilville, Indiana, and was scheduled to undergo further tests to determine the extent of his injuries.
In a Facebook posting after the attack, Fr Thomas Loya, director of the Respect Life Office for the Byzantine Ruthenian Catholic Eparchy of Parma, Ohio, said, “The attacker choked him and slammed his head to the ground. Father Basil lost consciousness. Before going unconscious, Fr Basil heard the attacker say, ‘This is for all the kids!’” – a reference to clergy sex abuse scandals that have resurfaced in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
