Gospel singer, pastor Marvin Winans assaulted, carjacked in Detroit

This is so sad.  Pastor Winans gets carjacked in BROAD DAYLIGHT.  They ended up taking his money and his car... but thank God, not his life.   Here's the official report from the DETROIT (AP).  It reads, "Popular Detroit pastor and gospel singer Marvin Winans was assaulted and carjacked Wednesday afternoon at a gas station on the city's west side. The attack happened about 3:20 p.m., and the suspects fled with an unknown amount of cash and Winans' SUV, police said.

Winans, 54, told WXYZ-TV 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 didn't believe he was seriously hurt, but planned to seek medical attention. He said his attackers appeared to be among 10 young men he passed by inside the station, and he warily watched them as he pumped gas.

"I'm just saddened that it has come to this," Winans said. "This kind of nonsense just has to stop. It's just the savageness of what's happening in the street." He also believes his attackers didn't recognize him. Winans is pastor of the 4,500-member Perfecting Church on Detroit's east side. In February, he gave singer Whitney Houston's eulogy.
