Neighbours said shocked churchgoers ran out of the service saying the priest had been stabbed

A 48-year-old-priest from Kerala sustained stab injuries at Melbourne in Australia.

In a suspected case of racism, a Keralite Catholic priest was stabbed by an assailant at a church in Melbourne's north when he was about to start his Sunday service.

"This is appalling behaviour and people should never be treated like this", Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne spokesman Shane Healy told AAP.

Rev Mathew was taken to a nearby hospital in a stable condition.

Vicar General Monsignor Greg Bennet said the priest was doing well in hospital and wanted to get back to work soon.

Uber president Jeff Jones quits amid turmoil
Ed Baker, Uber's VP of product and growth, also quit Uber this month, according to Recode. Jones joined Uber in August and was widely expected to be Kalanick's No. 2.

A man is in custody over an allegedly racist, violent attack on a Priest.

According to the report, it is believed that the offender told the priest that because he was Indian, he must be a Hindu or a Muslim and therefore can't be saying mass. "I will kill you". Father Tomy's first thoughts have been for the parishioners and the school community. He then produced a kitchen knife from his pants and stabbed him in the neck before fleeing.

He was later seen on Minona Street, where he escaped some worshipers who pursued him.

"While the ceremony was on, the accused person came forward and shouted that since he [Mathew] is an Indian, he can not conduct the mass there", Mr. Bhasi said.
