At least they didn't kill him. But he probably should have left that Rolex at home.

Well, it's not a good neighborhood, apparently. He stopped for gas, got out and went in the store, and got hammered when he got back to the car. Of course, no word on the race of the perps.

From the link:

Here is proof that no one is immune from the violence in Detroit. It turns out pastor and gospel singer Marvin Winans is the city's latest crime victim. The reverend says he was roughed up at the gas pump. Thieves robbed him and then carjacked him. They're still on the streets with his luxury SUV.

He stopped at pump number one to refuel at the Citgo at Linwood and the Davison on the city's west side. Winans, founder on Detroit's Perfecting Church, walked inside the Citgo and noticed a dozen young men in the gas station's lobby.

As Pastor Winans walked back out to pump gas, three to four of the young men followed him to the pump.

Winans told police he was suspicious, so he watched the young men as his gas tank overflowed.

"He directed his attention back to the gas pump and was turning it off. At that time, a gentleman that was here at the gas station punched him from his blind side, knocking him to the ground. When he fell to the ground, a couple more guys intervened and started punching and kicking him while he was down. They then went into his pockets and took his wallet containing approximately $200 in cash and a few other personal items," said Inspector Nick Kyriacou.

The thieves drove off with Pastor Winans' 2012 burgundy Infiniti QX56. The SUV list price is $72,000. His $40,000 Presidential Rolex was also stolen.

Based on the news story and the support Winans has in the community and his unusual car, those worthless thugs could get turned in. Hope so.

Yes, I imagine that purple car will be easy to spot-- those thugs may get some "community justice" as Pastor Winans is well known and admired by many.

If they were smart they'd hold a press conference on black on black violence. What's weird about this story is that the Pastor was just a few blocks from his church...it's likely those guys knew who he was.

Toyota SUV, they should probably check it for radiation level, and sticking gas pedal.

These car jackers can be dangerous. It's a good idea to carry concealed but not fight with them. Give them the vehicle then shoot them as they drive away.

Re: ***Pastor Marvin Winans Carjacked And Beaten In Detroit!***
U know this sounds a bit like the whores with the secret service. I think the mentally retarded pastor (I mean you'd have to be to be a pastor) was sucking their cocks, and refused to pay them as was agreed to, so they robbed him. Seems pretty straightforward to me. Did he have meth on his person when he was found?
ohyeah

Looks like pastor has more cash than he knows what to do with. Maybe the local muslims got him.

Yes, doesn't look great, but in the Pastor's defense, he and his sister have sold millions of records. He does have the right to spend his money on whatever he wants, but it does look unseemly for a man of the cloth.

DETROIT (WWJ) – Following a string of brutal killings and attacks, a city councilman is making bold suggestions to keep violent crimes down — including forcing gas station owners to hire security guards.

Somebody is going to get a hell of a deal on a Presidential Rolex.

Keep an eye on the local pawn shops.

The "church" business must pay pretty good.
