There is a disturbing pattern of vandalism emerging against a Pleasantville church that has been attacked twice in the last month, causing thousands of dollars in damage.

The latest incident at Mount Zion Baptist Church, 353 S New Road in Pleasantville, happened in broad daylight at 10 am Monday when a man on a bicycle rode up to the church and began throwing rocks and breaking windows.

The man responsible can be seen on the church surveillance video.

Monday's act of vandalism happened when a church administrator was in the building, according to a 6ABC report.

Maria Johnson-Edwards said she was in her office when windows started to shatter.

"I was scared. I was nervous. I was scared. So immediately after I called police, I started to call people I knew I would be safe with."

The man threw rocks through the front door of the church, breaking two panes of glass, and then broke five windows outside the church, including one stained-glass window.

On June 2nd, someone broke another window at Mount Zion Church.

The church has reported the incidents to police. They are hoping to raise money from their congregation to upgrade the security system.

Mount Zion Baptist Church in Pleasantville has a congregation of 560 people and opened in 1906.
