Police arrested a man Sunday who robbed an 89-year-old woman as she was going to a revival service at First Baptist Church.
Edward Schwab, 42, was charged with common law robbery and possession of stolen property, a news release said.
The robbery happened about 2:20 p.m. Sunday as the woman was in the church parking lot, said the church administrator.
Schwab stopped the woman and asked for directions, police said.
As she was answering him, Schwab grabbed the purse from her shoulder, knocking the woman to the ground, police said.
