North Carolina church members tackle man trying to force his way inside
Baptist church congregants in North Carolina reportedly tackled a man who they say attempted to force his way inside during services last Sunday.
“He was reaching back in his pants and I just felt like he had a gun or ill intent, and at that point, I knew I could not let him back inside,” Macedonia Free Will Baptist Church member Kevin Toler, told WXII-TV.
Toler and another church member brought the suspect, identified as Christopher Bennett, to the ground in the incident caught on surveillance video outside of Vanceboro, N.C.
