(Cleveland) - A 71-year-old nun who works at the Ursuline Academy of Cleveland was the victim of an armed robbery Thursday afternoon. 

According to Cleveland Police the Sister Mary Raymond was at her home on Mandalay Avenue, when a young man came to her driveway and pointed a silver handgun at her and demanded her car. 

She gave him the keys, and he drove away. 

Detectives say the suspect is 18, was wearing dark clothing, a baseball cap and a black mask. The car was a 2004 Honda Civic, containing school supplies and sports uniforms. It was recovered a few blocks away. 

Cleveland Councilman Jeff Johnson says he spoke Sister Mary about the ordeal, and reports she is feeling better today. 

Johnson laments, "This is where we have come to in Cleveland that a nun is robbed at gunpoint, and the St. Aloysius Catholic School supplies and uniforms are stolen with her car."
