TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Police say a gun-wielding Ohio pastor and two family members have robbed a Sunday school teacher at their church.

The Blade newspaper reports St. Paul’s AME pastor Anthony Morris, along with his wife, Zelda Morris, and 19-year-old daughter Kamali Morris have been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

Police say 39-year-old Nickema Turner, of Maumee, was in her class teaching over the weekend when the teen grabbed her by the hair. They say Zelda Morris punched Turner in her face and the pastor then threw Turner to the ground. Police say Zelda Morris dumped out Turner’s purse and took items including a stun gun and cellphone. The pastor allegedly held a gun on Turner.

No attorneys are listed in court records.

Turner was treated at the scene.
