Man Tries to Rob Woman at Big Spring Church

BIG SPRING - Big Spring Police are investigating an attempted robbery in a church parking lot.

It happened Sunday evening around 6:45 at the Iglesia Bautista on Lancaster. Police say a woman was walking to her car when a man approached her, demanded money and put a gun to her chest.

The woman refused to hand over her money and honked the horn to her car. Two men from the church came outside and began chasing the would-be robber, but he was able to get away, possibly in a tan Ford pickup.
