OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A man accused of robbing and punching a 76-year-old woman at Omaha’s St. Cecilia Cathedral has pleaded guilty.

Online court records say 23-year-old Wayman Clark entered the plea Wednesday in Douglas County District Court. His sentencing on the robbery conviction is scheduled for Aug. 3

Surveillance video of the Aug. 16 crime shows the woman was reading the parish newsletter at the cathedral entrance when two men approached her. One stole her purse and the other punched her in the face, causing the woman to hit her head against the side of a table as she fell.

The other man charged is 21-year-old Larry Leggett. He’s pleaded not guilty to robbery and is due in court Monday for a pretrial conference.
