A man is accused of attacking a woman and stealing her truck while she was trying to go to church.

The truck theft was the first of two vehicles he was accused of stealing on the same day.

Manuel Torrez is behind bars tonight charged with robbery, kidnapping and criminal damage to property.

Police report that he was fighting a woman for her truck on Saint Patrick’s Day.

Police say he tried forcing her into the passenger seat before taking the truck.

Court documents state he crashed that truck and then got into another woman’s car that was unlocked.

Torrez is also accused of taking several people’s credit cards.
