A possible suspect in a string of 20 stabbings that terrorized people across three states and left five dead was arrested at an airport as he tried to board a plane for Israel, officials said Thursday.Read the rest of the story here.
The man was arrested late Wednesday and was being held on unrelated charges, police in Leesburg, said.
He was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, where he was trying to board a Delta Air Lines flight to Tel Aviv, Israel, said Rafael Lemaitre, a spokesman at U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The man has ties to Flint, Mich., where the attacks began May 24, and to Leesburg, the site of three similar attacks last week, Leesburg Police Officer Chris Jones said.
He is an Israeli citizen who is in the U.S. legally, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the ongoing investigation.

Racist serial killer revealed to be Israeli citizen
A man who had apparently launched twenty stabbing attacks, nearly all against African American men, has been revealed to be an Israeli citizen in the United States legally. If this had been a Mexican illegal alien, conservatives would be lighting up the internet with calls to close the border with Mexico. I wonder if this means the Republican Party will call for a reduction in the number of visas granted to Israelis? Somehow I don't think it will.
