A 22-year-old has been arrested in the mugging of an elderly woman late Sunday morning in St. Cecilia Cathedral.
Omaha police have arrested Wayman Clark of Omaha. He is one of the suspects in the attack.
Surveillance video from the church show the 76-year-old woman from Johnston, Iowa walking into the church vestibule and reading some literature at a small desk. Two men enter. One grabs her purse and flees. The other seems to hesitate before slugging the woman who crumbles to the floor.
Clark’s mother, 53-year-old Charlean Clark of Omaha, has been arrested as well, charged with accessory to a felony.
Members of the Omaha Police Department gang unit reviewed the video and thought they recognized Clark as one of the two assailants. Other tips pointed to Clark.
Police continue to look for a second suspect.
The Omaha Police Department requests any member of the public call the department at 402-444-5652 or Omaha Crime Stoppers at 402-444-STOP.
