Two sister missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Chile Concepcion South Mission were assaulted Thursday morning in Temuco, Chile.
LDS.net affiliate LosMormones.org reports that two men barged into the home where four sister missionaries live, threatening the young women with a BB gun, acting as though it was real. Prior to leaving the home with stolen items, the perpetrators attacked two missionaries, one of whom they sexually assaulted.
The crime occurred around 6:00 AM Thursday, April 30, 2015. The sister missionaries, from Argentina and Chile, were able to quickly notify the police allowing law enforcement to make an arrest minutes after the suspects left the home, according to Los Mormones. The suspects are charged with robbery, intimidation and rape.
