A prominent Church elder from Birmingham, UK, has been stabbed during a worship service.
Karl George is the managing director of The Governance Forum, which “consists of specialist organizations working together to deliver exceptional standards in the whole area of governance.”
He was attacked, along with two other members at the Church service on Sunday. “Hi all just to update you.
I’m fine a little shaken but all is well. Thank you all for your texts messages, prayers and love,” George said in a post on Facebook after the incident.
“A man with a knife stormed inside our sanctuary. Our normal Sunday service was going on and while that was going on he came. He was challenged at the door by our ushers. At that point he was restrained by them,” Minister Kevin Hutchinson of the New Jerusalem Apostolic Church said.
“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,” he added, according to The Birmingham Mail.
