SAN FRANCISCO — Police say one person is in custody in connection with the stabbing of a staff worker at a popular church in San Francisco.

San Francisco Police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy says the worker suffered non-life threatening injuries after being stabbed in the shoulder inside Glide Memorial Church Monday morning.

Glide spokeswoman Denise Lamott says the worker was treated by his co-workers and then paramedics before being taken to a local hospital.

Shyy said a man allegedly involved in the stabbing fled from the church but was found on a nearby bus and detained by officers a few blocks away.

Lamott says the church is "saddened by this occurrence."

The church, located in the city's rugged Tenderloin neighborhood, is nationally renowned for its social activism and its annual Thanksgiving dinner that serves thousands.
