He’s no saint.
Cops are searching for a nogoodnik who they said snuck into the courtyard of a Cypress Hills church and knocked down a statue of Saint Francis of Assisi — twice.
The suspect first toppled the stone monument inside the garden of Blessed Sacrament Catholic church at 4:54 pm on Oct. 31, according to police, who said the effigy of the religious figure was returned to its place following the incident.
But the alleged vandal returned to the Euclid Avenue house of worship at 7:19 am on Nov. 11 and pushed the statue over again — this time breaking its base — before fleeing the scene, authorities said.
The suspect is a man approximately 20–25-years-old with long black hair, cops said.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcr
