NORFOLK -- Detectives are looking for vandals who shattered glass at a Norfolk pastor's house on Larkin Street.

Pastor Tom Douros said he was getting ready for Bible study and a prayer meeting when he heard a loud noise.

'I heard 'Crash!' and my wife was standing there in the kitchen. She thought I fell and I thought she fell,' said Douros.

His front window and car window were shattered by vandals.

Witnesses told the couple that they saw teens high-fiving and laughing nearby.

The pastor and his wife were not hurt in the incident.

Norfolk detectives have been looking for the suspects for several weeks.

'Did they just pick this house at random or just trying to get even with a pastor? But as far as I know, I don't have any enemies,' said Douros.

Douros' wife Alice joked that she would have run after the vandals if she were able.

'If had been younger, in younger days, we've had things happen, people breaking into our car or stealing after our tire. I would run out there,' she said.

The couple has lived at the house and served at Community Church of Norfolk for 55 years.

Over the years, they said they've had a few bicycles stolen but have never been vandalized this severely.

Norfolk police say anyone that can help should call the Crimeline at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

Mrs. Douros says she wants to keep the brick that went through her front window as a souvenir.

After 13News aired the story about this vandalism, folks at the First Colonial Inn e-mailed and offered to have the pastor and his wife stay at their independent living apartments until their house is repaired.
