MONROE, NC (AP) -- Police in Monroe are searching for a masked man who robbed a church at gunpoint on New Year's Eve. WCNC-TV in Charlotte reports that police were called to the Iglesia de Dios Nueva Vida (New Life Church of God) around 9 p.m. Monday night after several people reported a man carrying a large gun entered the building. Authorities say the man wore a black mask, a black jacket, and khaki pants, grabbed women's purses while showing either a shotgun or rifle. A police report showed the suspect never said anything but did point his gun at several people. Police said the thief walked out of the church and fled in an unknown direction. ___ Information from: WCNC-TV, (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
