A man has attacked worshipers at a Birmingham Church.

At least three worshipers have been stabbed after a knife-wielding man stormed a Birmingham church during service, local media report, adding that the suspect has been arrested.

The incident took place in the New Jerusalem Apostolic Church at 10:50am, according to local media.

A 46-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, Birmingham Mail newspaper reported.

One of the victims, a 33-year-old man has been taken to hospital in a stable condition, the paper added.

“Early indications suggest that the offender and victim knew each other and that this was a targeted attack,” a police spokesperson said.

The church minister told The Birmingham Mail that three people were injured in the attack.

Minister Kevin Hutchinson described how a man wielding a “large kitchen knife” interrupted Sunday service, but was challenged by at least three churchgoers who were injured by the attacker.

They managed to detain him until police arrived, Hutchinson added.
