Around 5:20 a.m., Omaha Police stated that they were called to a disturbance at a house in the 2200 block of 11th Street. The victim reported to the police that a female suspect gave him cuts with a knife and bathed him in “a flammable liquid.”

After attempting to set the house on fire, the female headed in the direction of the church. The victim’s wounds weren’t thought to be life-threatening.

The priest was reportedly locking himself in his bedroom; firefighters used a ladder truck to free him from the house. After that, the suspect locked herself inside.
