Sunday School Teacher Robbed At Gun Point By Her Own Pastor: Report

Warrants have been issued for a Toledo pastor and two family members accused of beating and robbing a Sunday school teacher at the church over the weekend, authorities say.

The Toledo Blade reported Monday that Pastor Anthony Morris and his wife, Zelda Morris, and daughter Kamali Morris were each charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, a first-degree felony, after the incident Sunday at St. Paul’s AME Zion Church.

Police said Nickema Turner was teaching at the church when the 49-year-old pastor and his family attacked her, and the 46-year-old wife dumped items from the Maumee woman’s purse and took them.

Turner tried to recover her belongings when Morris drew a gun, pointed the weapon at her and threatened to kills her, police said.

The couple fled the church with their 19-year-old daughter after the attack, police said.

Ms. Turner was treated for unspecified injuries at the church by Toledo Fire and Rescue crews.

The pastor and his family remained at large late Monday morning. Warrants have been filed for their arrest, according to the report.
