ST. PAUL — Before a 52-year-old man died, he attempted to rob a Church of Scientology employee who fought back and was joined by other workers to hold him down in downtown St. Paul, police said Tuesday, Jan. 21.
Officers found the man unconscious and not breathing Monday night, and he was pronounced dead at Regions Hospital. The cause of his death remains under investigation.
Officers were called to the parking ramp by 505 N. Wabasha St., which is the Church of Scientology, about 7 p.m. Monday. Witnesses reported the man, whose name hasn't been released, tried to rob a 49-year-old Church of Scientology worker in an elevator lobby just before officers were called.
