Church Director Seriously Injured In Attack

A beating at a Longview church today.

It happened at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Blue Ridge Parkway. Police say a white male walked in and demanded money from a female church director. When she told him there was no money, he began beating her with a pipe.

Police say another man tried to help, but he was injured by the assailant as well."He was interrupted during this assault by our other victim who heard the first victim calling for help. He went in and did the best he could to try and stop the assault," says Sgt. James Johnson.

The female victim is in serious condition. The second victim was not seriously injured. Police have released a description of the suspect's vehicle. They are looking for an older model dark colored Nissan Pathfinder. Police say it possibly has the license plate number 7-G-5-2-5-P. If you have any information, call the Longview police department.
