A stabbing incident occurred in Moscow on Sunday, as churchgoers gathered in one of the city's churches for the morning worship service, Eurasia Diary reports citing Sputnik.

According to Irina Volk, a representative of the Russian Interior Ministry, several people have been injured after a man attacked churchgoers with a knife at the Church of Saint Nicholas in central Moscow.

"Police have detained a 26-year-old man from Lipetsk Oblast, who entered a church on the Bakuninskaya Street and injured two people. The injured people have been sent to hospital," Volk said.

Describing the incident, the Father Superior of the church said that a man ran into the church, and a priest came to him with his aide to ask what had happened. The man then put out a knife and stabbed a person. 

At that moment, churchgoers came to the victim's rescue, but the perpetrator had already managed to injure another person.

The reasons for the attack are being investigated.
