Man Who Mugged Priest Cut Woman with Glass Weeks Before, Prosecutors Say

STATEN ISLAND — One of the two men who robbed a priest by gunpoint in Port Richmond Thursday  burned a woman with a shard of glass and cut her face just weeks earlier, prosecutors said.

Kerry Pack, who allegedly robbed the priest with Antwyne Lucas, 44, heated up a piece of glass inside a North Burgher Avenue home on May 19 and used it to burn Claudia Sirca's arm and cut her in the face and arm, prosecutors said.

Pack, 39, Lucas and Sirca were arrested Thursday night after they broke into a Henderson Avenue home hours after Pack and Lucas robbed the priest, prosecutors said.

At about 5:10 a.m., Rev. Marc J. Roselli parked his car at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, at 1265 Castleton Ave., and was heading inside to serve mass when Pack and Lucas approached him, prosecutors and a parish worker said.

Pack pulled out a gun, pressed it to Roselli's ribs and took $18 in cash, his credit card and car keys, according to prosecutors and the parish.

The pair punched Roselli — who was not wearing his collar at the time — giving him a black eye and drove off in his car, prosecutors said.

They ditched the car then broke into the Henderson Avenue home with Sirca, 26, at about 4 p.m., where they were arrested, prosecutors said.

Lucas and Pack were charged with robbery, assault and criminal trespass at their Sunday arraignment, the Staten Island District Attorney's office said.

Their bail was set at $250,000 and they're due back in court on Monday, the DA said.

Their lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Sirca was charged with criminal trespass and released without bail, the DA's office said.

Her lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
