Police have arrested a 21-year-old man they suspect may be connected with the vandalism of St. Stephen Presbyterian Church on Sunday that caused a cancellation of services.

Fort Worth police said they took Jonathan Jimenez into custody, arresting him on outstanding warrants. A Fort Worth police officer, responding to the call about the church vandalism, saw Jimenez walking about from the area and detained him. He was later arrested for the outstanding warrants. Detectives have requested some forensic evidence to be analyzed seeking to link and/or clear the suspect of any involvement with the vandalism, according to Fort Worth police.

On Sunday morning, a church elder checked the church’s security system and contacted police. The church is located in the 2700 block of McPherson Avenue near Texas Christian University.
