Bishop Robbed While Delivering Sermon During A Livestreams

A bishop was robbed at gunpoint in the middle of a sermon Sunday in Brooklyn, and it was caught on video.

The service was being livestreamed when, according to the bishop, three to four men walked in with guns. He believes he was targeted.

Five to 10 minutes into preaching Sunday morning on Ramsen Avenue in Canarsie, Bishop Lamor Whitehead saw the door in the back of the room kick open.

According to his report, he said ‘Alright, alright, alright,’ pretty much stating that I’m not going to do anything because I know you’re coming for me. You’re coming straight to me. I don’t want my parishioners hurt. I’ve got women and children there.”

“As I got down, one went to my wife and took all her jewelry and had the gun in front of my 8-month-old baby’s face. Took off my bishop’s ring, my wedding band and took off my bishop’s chain, and then I had chains underneath my robe and he started tapping my neck to see if anything else. So that means they knew. They watched and they knew that I have other jewelry,” he explained.

“They had guns on my deacons that was at the door,” said Whitehead.

What you don’t see on camera, Whitehead said, are around 100 congregants who were in the room. Men, women and children dropped to the floor in silence.

“My church is traumatized. The women and children are still crying. Babies are still crying,” said Whitehead.

According to police, the men took off in a white Mercedes. Whitehead said cops have a license plate and witnesses saw the men change clothes outside.

“These men, they need to turn themselves in,” Whitehead said. “I forgive you and I’m praying for you, and I hope that God deliver you from the mindset of who you are at this time.”

Whitehead believes his family was targeted because of the publicity he received when he helped turn in the suspect wanted in the fatal subway shooting of 48-year-old Daniel Enriquez in May.
