Suspect in attack on Pennsylvania nun denies guilt

ALQUIPPA, Pa., Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A young Pennsylvania suspect denied any involvement in the sexual assault of a retired nun last week, the youth's brother said.

Andrew Bullock, 18, Aliquippa, was in the Beaver County jail this weekend on charges that included rape in the attack that took place late Friday morning outside a Roman Catholic church in town.

"I don't know what to believe," Bullock's brother, Zach Hauser, told the Pittsburgh Tribune Review Saturday. "He said that he had been walking by the church, but he didn't do it."

Police, however, said Bullock was identified by the 85-year-old victim and a witness saw someone matching Bullock's description in the area at the time of the attack. Detective Sgt. Steven Roberts said Bullock confessed to the attack during questioning, although he did not provide a motive.

Bullock was being held on $50,000 bond Sunday while the alleged victim recovered from surgery on her broken jaw.
