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.

Sounds like one of those televangelists almost with his expensive vehicle and rolex watch.
You mean unscrupulous I think.
Wouldn’t it brown-off poor but honest parishioners? Even if they all knew he was independently wealthy?
Well.....I’m sure if you ask Hugo himself, he would say yes!? Yes/no?
I mean Che’ is passe’....Hugo is huge. (copyrighted)
Thugs know thugs.
The good pastor raised some very talented kids and I'm sure they bless him in many ways. Got no problem with it.
Also does anyone know? Is “Perfecting” Pastor Marvin Winans related to the female (black) recording gospel artist CeCe Winans? Another faux “gospel” black person in favor of 0dumb0’s ripoff! If so maybe they could pool the several hundred thousand or so of jewelry on the pampered bodies and buy 2-3 more luxury cars & Rolex watches.
It’s the local news there and in the Dexter-Davison part of Detroit. It’s a given that everybody was black. Victim and crook. Not too many crackers there.
The Reverend Jesse Jackass kind of pastor...
Her older brother.
A little correction to the good pastor's name.
The kind that routinely carries $200 in cash in a rough neighborhood?
Sounds like really bad situational awareness.
That’s actually a big music family, so I doubt he got his wealth from his congregation or shakedown. I don’t put him in Jim Bakker, Jesse Jackson, or Al Sharpton category.
Policese. He was no "gentleman," and who in their right mind would pay $40,000 for a watch?
Thanks! In that case, double the lack of sympathy for either one of these sheister con artists.
I never cared for CeCe Winans anyway. I remember at a Christmas concert during the GW Bush era, Michael W. Smith introduced CeCe Winans as the "first lady of gospel music" with a smug pious look on her face. I barfed, then turned off the TV. I can't stand to see her & other black recording artists warbling out their monotonous R&B versions of gospel music.
A watch covered in genuine diamonds mayhaps? Or case and band is almost pure gold?
CeCe Winans is his sister.
Here is an example of her stuff. It struck me as so-so, a little like TV game show or supermarket background music.
But someone obviously loved it, or it wouldn't have made the royalty dough it did. And I'm firmly in the boat of St. Paul who was willing to be "all things to all people so that some might be saved." If it is a link by which God draws a soul near, it is worth more than any earthly cash. Smug expression on the singer's face or no.
I mean Winans of course not Williams.
I would imagine the watch was a gift and the car - the church supplies him a car but certainly they are not thrifty but exorbitant.
