Possibly responsible for twenty racially motivated stabbings in Michigan, Ohio and Virginia, causing five deaths, is caught while boarding a flight to Tel Aviv, Israel. Police say the chain of attacks began on 24 May. Their investigations were focused on Flint, where 16 attacks took place, until police in Leesburg reported three attacks. Police in Toledo, Ohio, then reported a stabbing on Saturday that appeared to be connected to the other stabbings. Investigators say the attacks follow a similar pattern - the attacker approaches black men at night in urban areas, asks for directions or help with a broken-down automobile, and then stabs the victims with a knife. The stabbings have occurred on average about once every four days since the end of May. The victims have mostly been black.
