Police are still searching for a man who brutally attacked a woman outside a Greek Orthodox Church in Queens.

As you can see from this surveillance video, the man followed the woman who was heading to a Sunday service at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Briarwood.

As she walks up the stairs, he knocks her to the ground.

The NYPD said he then stole her purse and drove away in the victim’s car.

Father Konstantinos Kalogridis, the head pastor at St. Demetrios, told Currents News that he questioned what kind of person could carry out this kind of attack.

The pastor also said the police regularly patrol the church.

He is still asking parishioners to be extra alert of their surroundings.
