Man Stabs 3 Church Members During Service
Once again, the House of God is under attack.
Few weeks after several people were killed in Anambra State, 3 members of the New Jerusalem Apostolic Church in Aston, Birmingham, were attacked by a man with knife.
One victim, 33, suffered a neck wound before two other members of the congregation.
The church has named the victims as Karl George, Adam Brooks and Jorge George.
Minister Kevin Hutchinson said about 150 people were taking part in the New Jerusalem Apostolic Church’s Sunday service shortly before 11am when “a man with a knife stormed into our sanctuary.”
He said the attacker was challenged at the door by ushers and restrained.
He added: “He drew out a large kitchen knife and was restrained by a number of members, about three. Three members were injured and were taken to hospital.
“The men in the church were able to restrain him until the police and paramedics came.”
Officers at the scene arrested a 46-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder.
The man with the neck wound is now in a stable condition in hospital. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
