The jihadi man tried to blow himself up and when the bomb failed, he pulled an axe from his bag and attacked priest Albert Pandiangan, 60, at St Yoseph Church in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra in Indonesia.
The congregation then stepped in and managed to wrestle the axe from his grasp, detaining him until the police arrived.
As officers marched the suspect to the car, pictures show his white trousers soaked in blood (left) and a bloodied face later at the station. Police found his ID card and a picture of the ISIS flag (inset).
