A priest in Brazil is accused of running over a man suspected of stealing clothes from a church. Upon learning of the robbery, the priest stormed out of a wedding he had presided over.

Father Gustavo Trindade dos Santos, 37, celebrated a wedding in the southeastern Brazilian state of São Paulo on Saturday Daily Mail.

The bride revealed her experience with the priest to the Brazilian news agency metropolises“I didn’t know him but he was super attentive – he laughed, he joked with us before and during the ceremony.”

“He told me to stay calm, to breathe, that everything would be fine,” said Tatiane de Fátima.

The priest officiated at the ceremony, but during the reception he found out about a man suspected of stealing three hoodies and a T-shirt from the parish hall of the São Sebastião church.
