According to reports, two men have been arrested in connection with the robbery of Pastor Lamor Whitehead that took place during the middle of a church service.
Police arrested Juwan Anderson and Say-Quan Pollack who now face federal robbery charges as a result of the July 24 stick up.
The Department of Justice released the following statement regarding the arrests of Anderson and Pollack:
“Earlier today, in federal court in Brooklyn, an indictment was unsealed charging Juwan Anderson and Say-Quan Pollack for their roles in an armed robbery at a church in Brooklyn (the “Church”) on July 24, 2022. The defendants were arrested today and will be arraigned this afternoon before United States Magistrate Judge Ramon E. Reyes, Jr. A third defendant remains at large.”
U.S. Attorney Breon Peace said, “As alleged, the defendants brought guns into a place of worship, stealing from two members of the clergy, and terrifying the congregation in the process.”
Peace continued, “I commend the Special Agents and Detectives for their outstanding efforts in identifying the perpetrators who committed a crime that shocks the conscience for its brazenness. This Office will always work with our law enforcement partners to protect our houses of worship, prosecute those who engage in gun violence and ensure the safety of all members of our community.”
In a statement released by Whitehead’s publicist, the pastor “was notified by team members of the NYPD and the ATF robbery task force that two suspects have been taken into custody.” He would later address the arrests during an IG Live session on Wednesday night.

Previously, pastor Lamor Whitehead was robbed of $400,000 in jewelry during a live stream church service. Now, the same pastor is back in the headlines again after being seen manhandling a woman during the live stream service.
During the service, a woman could be seen walking across the screen while Whitehead was speaking at the Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries in Brooklyn. Law enforcement sources went on to say the woman who walked across the screen was charged with disrupting a service or funeral and trespassing. Both of the charges are misdemeanors.
Pastor White was allegedly arrested for assault after putting their hands on the woman but was released with no charges. While speaking about the incident in another video, Whitehead says the woman and others were sent to interrupt his service. The pastor said the woman started to charge at his wife and baby girl while firing off threats, which is why he reacted. Watch above.
