Detroit Pastor Marvin Winans Assaulted And Carjacked Yesterday
Detroit pastor and gospel singer Marvin Winans was assaulted and carjacked yesterday afternoon at a gas station on the city’s west side. He told reporters that four or five young men followed him from inside the gas station and attacked him while he gassed up his vehicle.
Winans said he wasn’t seriously hurt, but planned to seek medical attention. The suspects fled with an unknown amount of cash and Winans’ SUV.
Winans thinks his attackers didn’t recognize him. He is pastor of the 4,500-member Perfecting Church on Detroit’s east side.
