AMBRIDGE, Pa. - Police in Ambridge said a man pushed an 80-year-old woman to get to a church's money jar on Friday.
Investigators said the man went into St. Peter and Paul Church, where parishioners were preparing for their Good Friday pierogi sale.
Police said the man pushed an elderly woman aside to get to a money jar and fled from the building.
"He came in and ordered three dozen pierogis. As the woman was taking the order, he pushed her and grabbed the money. She actually fought back and grabbed him before he got away," said Tim Depenhart of Ambridge Police.
Investigators said there was a woman in a getaway truck waiting for him down the street.
Police said the man has been arrested.
