Caught On Tape: Two Men Rob 76-Year-Old Woman In Church Before Punching Her To The Ground

An attack against a 76-year-old woman inside a church last Sunday went viral, and now cops in Omaha, Nebraska say they’ve closed in on one of the two suspects.

WOWT reports that a felony warrant was issued earlier this week for 22-year-old Wayman Clark.

The victim was standing in the vestibule area at St. Cecillia’s Cathedral to pick up a pamphlet when she was ambushed around 11 a.m. Reports say one suspect emerged to snatch her purse and the other beat her down. As the elderly woman fell to the ground, she hit her head against the table. Help was called and she was transported to the hospital. The victim is expected to survive.

The video shows the attackers making a run for it on foot.

As for the church, Father Michael Gutgsell spoke out to WOWT, saying, “Of course it’s shocking because we haven’t had anything like that here – at least not in 10 years. And so obviously we prayed for her the next two masses and parishioners are now concerned.”

The video yielded solid clues for investigators. In fact, the Omaha police gang unit scanned the contents closely and eventually recognized Clark, which is how they were able to issue the arrest warrant.

Clark wasn’t the only person arrested — the report notes that his mother, 53-year-old Charlean Clark, was also arrested for allegedly harboring a fugitive.

As of now, police say a second suspect is still wanted, but they do not know the person’s identity. If you have any information, please contact CrimeStoppers directly: 402.444.STOP.

    Their was absolutely no need to punch her, grab her bag, she’s not looking at you, she’s sure as hell not going to chase you, and be gone, animals. They’re black, it’s how they’re raised.

        • Angela Garner

          You sound ignorant! Maybe it’s because that is all the news media wants you to see! All of the theater murders were NOT committed by black men! Stop your racist rants!

          • greg

            Right, it’s a nationwide conspiracy? Maybe the blacks rioting and looting are really white but the media tints the camera lens? Stop blaming others and take responsibility for your actions. (not you specifically but you know what I mean)

          • Angela Garner

            Lololololol! You’re making another asinine assumption! You don’t know me! But I know I can’t waste my time arguing with a racist! God bless!

          • greg

        • LaTonya Lige

          You stand by what you want to believe and not fact your opinion is very biased.

        • Anna Sims

    • KhaleesiBlaq

      We are NOT ALL raised to disobey the law!! That’s like saying ALL white people are raised to rape their children, be racist, and become serial killers. There are good and bad in EVERY race. Your comments shows one thing, you were raised ignorant AF!

      • TCR

        You niggers have a learning disability.

    • TCR

      Screw deporting Mexicans, we should deport niggers.

      • Anna Sims

        Somebody needs to deport ur stupid, ignorant, racist, redneck ass!!!!!

        • TCR

          I wish you would get tarred and feathered.

  • clinton

    • KhaleesiBlaq

      Exactly! It shames me when people of color do these things, playing into the stereotype that we are all THUGS and violent, shameless animals and that is SO not the case!!! I was raised right, by my Father who is a preacher. I could NEVER do anything this disgusting and violent. Nor would any black person I know.. Stop giving them a reason to hate us EVEN MORE than they already do!

      • TCR

        Stereotypes are there for a reason.

        • Anna Sims

          and that’s why they have a label for your stereotype. White trailer park trash and yes that is coming from a white person I can’t stand a racist person either way it goes but I will call you on it

      • Debra Obinna

        Don’t feed the wolves KhaleesiV! They have one track minds and you deserve better.
        These are coward mtfkrs but, you can’t judge a whole race by a few bad – or good for that matter. Each person is an individual.

    • Kathy

      They probably don’t care about their own parents either.

    • Anna Sims

      But I’m sure you would do that no matter what color the people were if you were the kids along with myself.

  • Josue Escobar

    Maybe their environment where they grew up affected them al through out their life plus they’re decisions have a lot to do with the crime they did. But not their race.

  • Richard Hicks

    Greg you white people chop bodies up and eat them. So get out of here with that skin color BS. Have you watch the ID channel lately? White people do some sick evil crap.

    • greg

      which happens more often, not saying no white people are animals but you NEVER!! see a white person beating an old man/woman, ever!

      • mew mow

        but you see them eating dicks that have been in their freezer from their last night booty call.

  • greg

    White people are really getting fed up with hearing about how black lives matter, and how every time a black person is a victim that another white person must pay, are blacks shot/beat more often by cops then whites, yes, is it right, NO, but to say no justice no ,peace really means “if a white person isn’t prosecuted we will riot” and when the FACTS show whatever happened was legal, no crime committed etc. you STILL demand justice, you demand a guilty verdict even when someone is innocent. Accept the results and move on, plenty of dirty cops are jailed and prosecuted, but not everyone is guilty

  • Fred Pope

    I’d like to get ahold of that mother fucker

  • cerebalblack

    No it’s women like these who give birth and let their morons roam the place committing these acts and then support them. Which mother would help to hide a child who committed this crime from the police. The same black women who are always supporting these criminals around us regardless what they do.

  • Irv C

    Typical! It’s
    In the DNA. Lower than animals beating up an old woman.

  • Mlembrant Kotlitel

    I hope they’ll place these retards into prison for a loooooooong… looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.. till they get very old.. then, they will be released, they’ll go to church and there.. you guessed it.. they’ll be punched, beaten and forced to eat du du.. poopoo..

  • brekinla

    Hey, you two dumb asses, that could of been your mom!
