Father Jean Kalombo saw it happened and chased after the suspect.
He eventually caught Woods on Breckenridge Street after a more than mile-long chase and held him down until police arrived.
Woods is also accused of stealing a child’s backpack off the front porch of a home a few months ago.
Father Kalombo says he’s going to use the incident in his message this Sunday.
