18-year-old arrested for beating, raping elderly nun outside church

Andrew Bullock, of Aliquippa, Pa., has been accused of attacking a 70-year-old nun in the parking lot of St. Titus Church Friday morning.

A Pennsylvania teen was arrested Friday after he allegedly attacked and raped a 70-year-old nun in a church parking lot, authorities said.

Andrew Bullock, 18, admitted to assaulting the elderly victim, police told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He was arraigned Friday night and faces at least 10 charges including felony rape, aggravated assault and sexual assault.

The nun was walking in the parking lot of St. Titus Church in Aliquippa, Pa., around 11:30 a.m. on Friday morning when a man came up to her from behind. He asked her if she needed help before exposing himself and the grabbing her neck and choking her on the ground.

The nun's injuries left her unable to speak when police arrived, so she wrote on a piece of paper that she had been assaulted, the Post-Gazette reported.

The victim, who is a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Baden, suffered a broken jaw and was treated at Allegheny General Hospital, according to KDKA. She is reportedly in stable condition.

Investigators said they were able to match the soles of Bullock's shoes with a footprint found in the snow at the scene of the attack.
