Police: Man Who Stabbed Rev. Arrested

| December 14, 2009

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. — The man who police said they believe stabbed a Highland Park pastor during an August home invasion was arrested this week in Jefferson County, Ala.

Wesley Mclemore, 41, is awaiting extradition. He will be transported back to Michigan to face charges in connection with the critical stabbing of Rev. Kevin Rambsy.

Rambsy was stabbed in the neck, arms and chest while he tried to fight off Mclemore during a robbery at his home on California Street on Aug. 4, police said.

Neighbors said the attack was around 3 a.m. They told Local 4 they were awakened by Rambsy's screams. He was yelling out in pain and to his wife, telling her that he loved her.

Ramsby's family was out of town at the time.

"My small intestines had come out through the knife cut. I literally had to carry my small intestine," he said.

Ramsby, the pastor of the Revival Tabernacle Assembly of God, located at Six Mile Road and Woodward Avenue has since recovered and returned to the church.

He told his congregates that it was God who saved his life that night.

"There are so many others hurting in our community, not just because of violence, with the economy and layoffs and jobs," he said. "The message I am sharing today is a message of God's faithfulness."

Ramsby had said that he has forgiven his attacker and would not mind meeting to pray with him once he was arrested.
