Man Allegedly Attacks Church
ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) - Charges of burglary and assault are expected to be filed against a man who barged into a St. Charles County church and allegedly attacked people. KSDK-TV reports that the incident happened Tuesday at First Baptist Church of St. Peters.
Three children were in the church daycare at the time, but police say they didn't witness what happened and were not involved. Authorities say that just before noon a 26-year-old man came into the church screaming, threatened at least one person and hit others.
A church worker tackled the man and held him until police arrived. Police are not discussing a possible motive. It wasn't immediately clear if the man had any connection to the church.
