Sydney church attacker ‘is boy, 15, who stabbed bishop during YouTube livestream’: Police address rumours child ‘had fingers cut off in revenge’ before being detained as riot breaks out after city is rocked by second stabbing in 48 hours

A 15-year-old boy had been detained after stabbing a bishop and a second clergyman with a knife during a sermon at a church in Sydney.

The shocking attack, livestreamed on YouTube by church cameras this afternoon, came as Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel was preaching at Christ The Good Shepherd Church in Sydney’s Wakeley district.

The bishop was speaking from the altar when a teen dressed in a dark hoodie sauntered up and suddenly lunged at him, furiously swinging at the elderly clergyman’s head and neck.

The attacker was seen smirking at horrified onlookers as he was pinned down after wounding the bishop and several worshippers.

New South Wales acting assistant commissioner Andrew Holland has now revealed that the suspect was being treated for wounds to his hand.

He has been taken to a secure location after the attack, the second stabbing to hit Sydney in just 48 hours, sparked a riot and unrest in the city.

Churchgoers sprang into action, running up to the altar and piling on top of the attacker as others placed urgent calls to emergency services.

Footage shared on social media minutes after the stabbing showed the alleged attacker being pinned down on his front by at least three people, including a police officer.

He can be seen grinning at the camera as one of his captors sits beside him in bloodstained jeans. Meanwhile outside the church, dozens of angry Sydneysiders gathered singing chants of ‘an eye for an eye’ and ‘bring him out’ as riot police descended on the scene.

Nobody was killed in the attack, though a clip shared to social media showed the stricken bishop being rushed out of the church on a stretcher and bundled into the back of an ambulance.
