An elderly Muslim was stabbed while praying at one of London’s biggest mosques Thursday afternoon and a man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, authorities report.

The victim, who is in his 70s, was attacked at London Central Mosque near Regent’s Park just after 3 p.m, according to police. He was taken to a hospital, where his injuries were determined to be “not life-threatening.”

Images apparently from the scene posted on Twitter show police holding down a man wearing a red jumpsuit on the mosque floor.

Witnesses said the man who was stabbed is the mosque’s muezzin, the person who calls Muslims to pray.

Police did not speculate on a possible motive.
