If there is a hell, there's probably a space reserved for people who rob churches.
If so, these two guys better watch out.
Crime Stoppers and HPD released these sketches of two guys suspected in robbing people carrying the collection from Assumption Catholic Church back in January.
There were two people carrying the funds; the suspects drove up in a van, one jumped out and knocked the church people (a woman) to the ground and grabbed the cash.
Suspect # 1 is described as being less than six feet tall, 5'07"-05'08", weighing 160-175 lbs, brown eyes, black hair, and dark brown complexion and was wearing a black du-rag.
Suspect # 2 the driver of the van is described as being bi-racial or Creole and well dressed.
