From: A. Michael Perkins
It has been drawn to my attention that there have been certain rumors making their rounds in social media, and I guess elsewhere, and thought that I should confirm publicly that:-
YES, I was assaulted in front of the Charlestown Police Station just after middaylast Saturday, by a man who obviously has mental issues, but that I was NOT physically injured, except for suffering a slight pain around my right shoulder.
All praise to God for his mercies, and I also publicly commend and sincerely thank the police officers who quickly came to my rescue.
I want also to take this opportunity to encourage us to say a SPECIAL PRAYER for those who have since chosen to make fun of, or attempted to create scandal out of such a serious incident.
Finally, I say a HUGE THANK YOU to the multitude of persons who have reached out to me and my family in a show of care and concern and offered prayers.
