Court records say Dakota Lee Parker is charged with burglary involving bodily injury. Parker was arrested after an attack on the Rev. Benjamin Webb at St. Luke's Episcopal Church.
Webb told police he noticed movement near the church cloakroom on Tuesday morning and called out to whoever was there.
Police say Parker appeared and began striking the 56-year-old Webb. Parker was arrested a short time later near an apartment building.
Police say it appears Parker smashed a door window to get into the church.
Parker remained in custody Thursday, pending $25,000 bail.
