ARMAGH, Pa. (AP) — Police say two western Pennsylvania men mistook a woman's Bible carrying case for a purse when they tried to snatch it from her, knocking her to the ground.

The Indiana Gazette reports that 26-year-old Christopher Scott Ludwig and 25-year-old Ronald Stephenson Jr., both of Seward, have been charged with aggravated assault, robbery and other charges in the incident Nov. 29.

Police charged Ludwig earlier this month before he told police that it was Stephenson who physically grabbed the Bible, knocking the elderly woman to the ground. Stephenson was arrested Tuesday.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Stephenson, and Ludwig's attorney didn't immediately return a call Thursday.

Police say the incident happened about 7 p.m. outside the rural Robin-dale Union Church in East Wheatfield Township, about 50 miles east of Pittsburgh.
