A VANDAL named Jesus smashed a church window before writing a grovelling apology letter and vowing to become a monk.
Jesus Luke Ripley caused £1,000 of damage to the window.
The 27-year-old then stormed into the place of worship and angrily ran around it.
He then claimed he was only cross as he was being chased and demanded refuge from his mystery attackers.
Church priest Mark Whiting revealed Jesus had asked him forgiveness and vowed to become a monk.
He explained: “He’s written a letter to me saying he would never have broken into a church if he hadn’t been chased.
“He was looking for refuge and he wants to be a monk. I take it at face value.
“I don’t know quite what he was doing. It looked like he was drunk.”
