A bishop was robbed at gunpoint while delivering a sermon

A bishop in a church in New York was recently robbed at gunpoint in the middle of a sermon and the whole thing was caught on camera. Bishop Lamor Whitehead was less than 15 minutes into his message when he saw an open door at the back of the room. Shortly after, he was seen raising his hands and can be heard saying to the intruders, “Okay, okay, okay.” Whitehead told WCBS he saw three or four men enter the church service. “I said, ‘okay, okay’, declaring that I won’t do anything because I know you’re coming for me, you’re coming straight to me – I have wives, children and parishioners there -down,” he said. . Whitehead said as he ducked to the ground, one of the intruders walked over to his wife, took all of her jewelry, and “had the gun in my 8-month-old baby’s face.” The intruders took the Bishop’s ring, wedding band, Bishop’s chain from Whitehead and other jewelry which was not visible. “I had chains under my dress and he started patting my neck which means they knew, they looked and they knew I had other jewelry,” Whitehead said. “They had guns on my deacons who were at the door.” What is not visible on camera is about 100 people who attended the church service and dropped to the ground as the intruders robbed the bishop “My church is traumatized, women and children are still crying, babies are still crying,” he said Video below: Bishop Lamor Miller-Whitehead talks about theft Whitehead says police have plaque license plate and that witnesses had seen the intruders change clothes outside before driving off in a white Mercedes. “These men they need to surrender,” Whitehead said. “I forgive you and I pray for you and I hope God delivers you from the state of mind of who you are right now.” It’s unclear what motive the intruders had for targeting Whitehead Church for the robbery, but he believes it has to do with the publicity he received after reporting a wanted suspect in a fatal Tube shooting in May. “I reported it but the media called me the ‘Bling Bling Bishop’, they had my Rolls Royce everywhere and I think that played a part in that,” he said. No one was injured in the burglary. The NYPD is still investigating.
