Ad Feedback

A group of men attacked well-known pastor and gospel singer Marvin Winans Wednesday at a Detroit gas station then took his car.

Winans, 54, said four of five young men followed him outside the store and assaulted him 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."

Winans is pastor of the 4,500-member Perfecting Church in Detroit. Millions also watched as he gave the eulogy for Whitney Houston in February.

Winans said his attackers didn't seem to recognize him.

"And if they did, it didn't make much difference," he added.

Winans didn't notice any apparent injuries but said he planned to see a doctor just in case.
