Two LDS Missionaries Mugged in Dallas

DALLAS, TEXAS -- Two LDS missionaries were attacked and beaten with a baseball bat in a Dallas neighborhood on Tuesday, leaving one Elder in the hospital with injuries that will take six weeks to heal. The muggers attacked the Elders at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and escaped with about $30 in cash.

Elder Burke Jensen, from Orem, Utah, and his companion, Elder Jason Mortenson, of South Jordan, Utah, were on their way to visit a recently baptised member when the attack occurred. Both Elders were beaten, and Elder Jensen's injuries were critical enough to hospitalize him at Baylor University Medical Center.

Dallas police report that several other similar attacks occurred on the same day.
