Man Tried to Rob Church During Services

A 21-year-old central Florida man faces multiple charges after authorities say he tried to rob a Melbourne church during Sunday services.

Pastor Les Snodgrass of The Door Christian Fellowship Church tells Florida Today he was in the middle of his sermon on Sunday when a man stood up and pointed a gun at his 76-year-old mother.

Snodgrass recalls John Grace yelled obscenities.

Melbourne police say Snodgrass pleaded with Grace before he and his son subdued him.

A police spokesman says Grace remains in jail.
