Priest Stabbed at Mexico City Cathedral

MEXICO CITY – A Catholic priest was stabbed at Mexico City’s Metropolitan Cathedral and taken to a hospital, where he is listed in serious but stable condition, government and church officials said.

The Rev. Miguel Angel Machorro was attacked at the cathedral on Monday, the Mexican Conference of Bishops said in a Twitter post.

Police arrested a suspect in his late 20s who “apparently stabbed a priest while he celebrated Mass at the Metropolitan Cathedral,” the Federal District Attorney’s Office said.

“The victim, who had wounds in the neck caused by a sharp weapon, was quickly taken by police officers to a private clinic, where he was reported to be in serious but stable condition,” the DA’s office said in a statement.

“The suspect, who identified himself as John Rock Schild, told authorities that he is an American artist and invoked his right to remain silent,” the DA’s office said.

Machorro was attacked at the end of Mass in the cathedral, the National Security Commission said, identifying the assailant only as a French national named John “N.”

Federal Protection Service officers assigned to guard the area around the cathedral immediately arrested the suspect and handed him over to Mexico City police, the commission said.
