A woman in Vatican City was escorted away by police after attempting to steal the Baby Jesus figure from a life-sized Nativity scene in December of 2017, as this bystander video shows.

The woman is reportedly connected to the Ukranian feminist group FEMEN, and screamed, "God is woman!" repeatedly during her burglary and detainment.

Vatican City police managed to grab the woman and save the ceramic baby; the video cuts to them escorting her off the scene, wrapped in a coat to hide her toplessness.

Watch this Christmas chaos ensue as a passionate woman tries to set the Nativity story straight by any means necessary.
