MANKATO — Vandals have struck a Mankato church for a second time.

Someone threw a brick, pieces of concrete block and a rock through two stained-glass windows and two other windows at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church early Friday.

Parish administrator Mark Frederick said the stained-glass windows were installed more than a century ago.

A Mankato police report says the thrown brick also damaged an elevator door inside the church.

The report said the estimated cost to replace the two regular windows is about $500 and the estimated cost to fix the elevator door is $1,000.
