DETROIT (WXYZ) - Pastor Marvin Winans was robbed and carjacked at a Detroit gas station Wednesday afternoon.
Winans was at the Citgo Gas Station at Linwood and the Davison when he was robbed. The carjackers robbed him and took his deep purple Infiniti QX56 SUV.
The license plate number on the vehicle is 0DRT73. Detroit Police are searching for the suspects.
He was not hurt in the incident, but was roughed up.
Pastor Winans told Action News he felt something was wrong when he came out of the gas station's convenience store.
He says four men followed him out and assaulted him while he was pumping gas. They robbed him, punched him and even ripped off his pants.
Pastor Winans says he's ok, but is more saddened that it has come to this.
“This kind of nonsense just has to stop… it’s just the savageness of what’s happening in the streets. We just have to take a look at ourselves and say this has to stop,” said Pastor Winans.
The legendary pastor most recently gave the eulogy at Whitney Houston's funeral.
