CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Police have arrested a man suspected of robbing donations from a New Jersey church.

Delvonte Olmo-Pagan of Camden is held on $960,000 bail, charged with robbery, aggravated assault by pointing a firearm and weapons charges.

Officials say the 20-year-old pointed a gun at a church worker outside St. Anthony of Padua Church in Camden, took a bag containing collections and fled on Sunday.

It’s not known if he has a lawyer.
