Benny Hinn’s Son Joshua Hinn In Trouble for Assaulting Deaf Man at Brazilian Event

The son of Christian evangelist Benny Hinn was detained for allegedly assaulting a deaf and dumb man during an evangelistic event in Manaus, Brazil. He and two other ministry bodyguards were detained at the time.

Reports by the Daily Mail on Monday stated that Benny Hinn’s 21-year-old:

“…Joshua Hinn and two bodyguards Caleb Shirk, 26, and Konstantins Konstantinovs, 34,  allegedly grabbed a deaf man named Hestephenson Araujo, 21, whom they thought was going to throw water at the minister. They are accused of taking the deaf and dumb man to a trailer where they interrogated and beat him, the Daily Mail reports. Araujo was eventually rescued by police, who had been called to the arena by “concerned members of the public.”

The three men were detained on suspicion of torture but no charges were filed. They reportedly told police they did not know Araujo, who was treated at a hospital for his injuries, was unable to hear or talk.

Araujo’s father claimed he made a deal with Benny Hinn’s representatives to refrain from pressing charges allegedly in exchange for a “large sum of money,” the Daily Mail reports. However, local authorities reportedly plan to continue investigating the alleged attack on Araujo.

Joshua Hinn and the ministry’s two body guards left the country without incident and returned to the U.S. on Sunday, which was the final day of Benny Hinn’s miracle healing services in the South American country.

The ministry’s tour in Brazil was scheduled to run from Feb. 11-17, according to a news release on its website that claimed many attendees had been healed.
