A nun was punched several times and suffered a broken finger, among other injuries, when a man jumped in a car she was sitting in on Aramingo Avenue late Sunday morning and attacked her, police said.
The attacker entered the car, which was idling outside the ShopRite in the 3700 block of Aramingo Avenue at about 11:15 a.m., and found the nun sitting in the passenger seat, police said.
He immediately told the woman dressed in her Catholic garb, including a habit, "I'll take you wherever you have to go."
But the nun, 65, who lives in the city, made a grab for the keys in the ignition, police said. The carjacker then began punching her and eventually shoved her out of the front passenger side door before fleeing in the car.
