KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- A second KCK church leader was robbed on Friday, marking two similar crimes in the span of a week. The robbery occurred at about 12:30 p.m., police then surrounded a home near 25th and Garfield after police K-9s tracked two juveniles, leading to a standoff.

The standoff ended just before 7 p.m. with the suspects surrendering.

Police tell FOX 4 that the two juveniles robbed the pastor of Timothy Baptist Church, and tried to take his car. Witnesses who know the pastor say he's okay and relaxing at home despite being shaken up.
