Father Yesaye, pastor of the Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church located in the Malatia-Sebastia district of Yerevan, told Hetq that he was threatened yesterday by two young followers of the Jehovah's Witnesses.
According to the Armenian priest, the two were proselytizing on church grounds and became "aggressive" when he told them to leave.
"Since they didn't identify themselves, I tried to photograph them with my cell phone but they grabbed it from my hands. I tried to take it back but they hit my hand and began to threaten me, saying 'you'll get yours' and other such words," said Father Yesaye.
The church pastor told Hetq that the two youths had stopped a couple of congregants and that's when he stepped in.
The local police have been called in to investigate.
