A Bryan man is charged with attacking and robbing a 95-year-old woman as she was walking to church Sunday morning.
News 3 spoke with the suspect's family and also looked at how the First United Methodist Church of Bryan is supporting their member who was attacked.
95-year-old Edna Earle Jackson had parked in her normal spot a little before 9:00 A.M. Sunday and was walking to church when she was knocked over and had her purse stolen.
Rev. Rick Sitton can't believe it happened here at First United Methodist Church.
Jackson was taken to the hospital after cutting her head on the curb and breaking her hip.
"She is in shock, but I talked with her and other pastors have seen her from the church and she has a great attitude. She says, 'You know I have a lot to be grateful for,'" said Rev. Sitton.
A witness driving by gave police a description of the suspect and within three minutes they located 20-year-old Jaquarios Neal six blocks away.
Police found evidence from the theft as well as stolen items from a car burglary that had happened shortly before at the St. Joseph Catholic Church parking lot.
Neal reportedly told police, "I didn't rob any old lady," during the investigation.
