A Florida pastor and a member of his congregation escaped injury this week after they say a man pulled a knife on them after they offered to pray with him.
Ramon Ortiz Felipe, 30, was arrested Sunday. According to a police report, he is charged with aggravated assault at a religious institution, assault and criminal mischief in a place of worship. The report says the pastor offered to pray with Felipe near a store-front church. After they prayed, the police report says Felipe pulled out a knife and began damaging church property. The pastor and a church member fled to a safe location and called police.
The police report does not give a motive for the vandalism. Jail records show he remains held on $20,000 in bonds.
