WESTPORT, Conn. (AP) — Westport police say two young men looking for Pokémon in the prayer garden of a local Roman Catholic church instead came across a naked woman who was vandalizing the property.

Police tell the Connecticut Post the men were playing smartphone game “Pokémon Go,” which led them into the garden of St. Luke’s Church on Wednesday.

They say the naked woman in the garden had pulled lights from the ground, overturned a statue and benches and was throwing garbage from her car into a baptismal pond.

Police were called. The woman, identified only as a 40-year-old Bridgeport resident, was taken to a local hospital for observation. She was not arrested.

Church officials say the damage to the garden can be repaired.
