Pastor Saves Congregation from Attempted Robbery

On Sunday, a 21-year-old man was arrested for allegedly trying to rob a Florida church during the sermon. Pastor Les Snodgrass was delivering a sermon called "The Value of Life," when John Grace pulled out a gun, told everyone to get on the ground and give him their money. Snodgrass told WKMG "He pulled a gun from his bag and put [it] up to my mother's head." Snodgrass then tried to distract Grace. When he got close enough, he attempted to save his congregation.

Snodgrass said "I just pushed against the wall with all my might. I had him by the shoulders, and as soon as I did that, my son leapt from the platform into the air and pounced on him. He punched him twice in the head." The weapon that Grace had was an "airsoft BB gun realistically modeled after a Sig Sauer pistol." Grace also had a knife. Snodgrass said that Grace attended the Door Christian Fellowship Church in Melbourne sporadically. Grace was charged with robbery, aggravated assault and false imprisonment.
