A Sudbury priest is still struggling to deal with being robbed at knifepoint.

Father Krzysztofer Niewinski was robbed Monday when a man broke into his residence — attached to St. Casimir’s Catholic Church.

"I was so scared, in my life it’s never happened like this," he told CBC’s Jenifer Norwell.

He described his assailant as having a negative energy so strong it was "almost touchable."
