The pastor of the Faith Center in San Fernando was recovering Thursday from serious injuries he suffered when he was assaulted, possibly by a former member of the congregation.

Rudy Trujillo was attacked about 11 a.m. Wednesday in the 700 block of North Maclay Avenue, near his church, according to the San Fernando Police Department.

No arrests have been reported.

“He’s a very strong man; strong in his faith,” the victim’s son, Joshua Trujillo, told KCAL9. “It just broke my heart. My initial reaction was just shock, anger.”

Joshua Trujillo said a former parishioner attacked his father, striking him in the head and knocking him to the ground and resulting in a broken hip, according to Channel 9.

Police are reviewing cell phone video taken by witnesses. No motive was provided by authorities.
