An Israeli man has been arrested as he was trying to board a plane to Israel. The man has been linked to about 20 attacks, leaving five people dead. The bulk of the attacks took place between Leesburg, Virginia and Flint, Michigan.
The attacks began on May 24th, and now, hopefully, have ended when the suspect was stopped in Atlanta. The man is an Israeli citizen who is in the States legally. Although his arrest is a start, there is no actual proof yet that he is the man authorities are looking for.
The stabber used techniques that involved stopping civilians in urban areas, asking for help to fix an automobile and such. He then stabbed his victims. The victims were mostly black men, so authorities are suggesting that his attacks may be racially motivated.
