Sources: Man robs 2 women outside church, points gun at infant

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly held up two women at gunpoint outside a church in East St. Louis, all while pointing a gun at a baby.

The incident happened Sunday morning at the New Horizon Community Church along Summit near 33rd in the central part of East St. Louis.

Sources say the incident happened about two weeks ago. One of the victims was holding a baby, and claims the suspect pointed a gun at the child while stealing their cash, credit, and debit cards.

No one was hurt in the incident, but police are still searching for the suspect who has been using the cards across the area.

Authorities say overall crime in East St. Louis has decreased, this particular area has had problems with gun violence, but nothing as extreme as a robbery near a church.
