Teen arrested over Scientology stabbing in Sydney

Police said the teenager was asked to leave the church and was being escorted away by two men when he produced a 10-inch kitchen knife and allegedly attacked the pair in what was described as a "domestic incident".

Detective Chief Inspector Jones would not confirm whether the boy was a member of the Church of Scientology but said he had a "lawful reason" to be there before being asked to leave.

The Church of Scientology said it was providing the police with any assistance needed in the investigation. He sustained only minor injuries and is in a stable condition.

"The victims were immediately taken to the Royal Hospital and the assailant arrested", the police said.

The alleged attacker was asked to leave the centre "only and exclusively in relation to a domestic incident" unrelated to the church that occurred on Wednesday.

It is understood that a family member of the 16-year-old attends the church and was at the premises when the attack took place.

Emergency services were called to the religious centre on Greville Street in Chatswood just after 12.30pm following reports of a stabbing.

The man in his 40s is in a stable condition, with a stab wound to the hand.

The pair were rushed to hospital and one man in his 20s later died.

The 24-year old, who worked at the centre, was stabbed in the neck and taken to Royal North Shore hospital, but died on Thursday afternoon.

It's a closely guarded, secret facility, but the Church of Scientology's Sydney headquarters are now a crime scene.

The complex, in North Sydney is the largest Scientology centre outside the United States.

The site - which borders the Lane Cove national park - was snapped-up for about $37million (£20million) by the secretive group.

The Chatsworth Scientology Centre, known as the Advanced Organisation and Saint Hill, was opened in September 2016.

"It offers a lot of services other (Scientology properties) don't".

The teenager was reportedly led off the grounds by police, handcuffed and with paper bags covering both hands.

Spread over nearly 13,500 square metres, the facility is the Church's largest centre outside the United States.
