Federal authorities are reportedly investigating a weekend stabbing in Virginia to see whether the attacker may have been trying to behead a victim and whether the attack was inspired by the Islamic State.

Wasil Farooqui, 20, was charged with two counts of aggravated malicious wounding in the stabbing attack Saturday that left two people wounded. ABC News reported Monday that the FBI have been aware of Farooqui and are familiar with the case.

According to ABC News, Farooqui had traveled to Turkey in the last year and may have tried to sneak into Syria to meet with ISIS militants.

Farooqui allegedly attack a man and woman at an apartment complex in Roanoke, according to WDBJ-7. Both victims were seriously injured in the attack. Witnesses told authorities that Farooqi was yelling “Allah Akbar.”

Authorities believe that Farooqui may have been trying to behead the male victim, according to ABC News. Investigators said that there was no connection between Farooqi and the victims.

    they all breed alike rodents on steroids!!!!
    they and illegals are announced to now bringing in wet leprosy…and numerous other drug resistant diseases…tb, lice, gonnorhea…..this is criminal!!!!

    each muslim in america will be extracted….detailed plans are being formulated…

  • InfidelCrusader

    These stabbings were Islam inspired. That’s all you really need to know. Which particular sub-sect of Islam this particular Muslim aligned himself with is irrelevant.

    • Elaine

      Yeah, it’s kind of a dead giveaway when ……

      “Witnesses told authorities that Farooqi was yelling “Allah Akbar.” ”

      It takes the FBI to try to figure this out?? … when apparently, they already “aware of Farooqui and are familiar with the case.” !!

      • InfidelCrusader

        Exactly. Why were they already “aware” of this individual? What was he doing to attract the attention of the FBI? Apparently the FBI did not pay close enough attention to him.

        • Luke

          PC, the idiot liberal PC, how many will have to die before we get rid of liberal PC and the liberals..

          • InfidelCrusader

            Unfortunately, too many.

        • Elaine

          How many others were the FBI aware of? Omar Mateen? Dylan Roof? Syed Farook? Tamarlen Tsarnaev? I guess they haven’t figured out how to get inside these terrorists’ heads BEFORE they do their damage. Luke (below) is correct. Our top investigation organization is going to have to say ‘PC be damned’, and keep these people on their radar, whether they can determine probable cause or not.

  • Luke

    No, he was a member of the boy scouts resulting in PTSD.

    Stupid media..they must really love the islamofacist cult

  • Philip

    It was inspired by his membership in the muslim death cult. The feds. contort themselves to try to connect these maniacs with some unapologetic group of muslim killers so they can perpetuate the false narrative that muslim terrorists are a minority of muslims. They all believe the same thing. Some are fighting in plain view. The rest facilitate and infiltrate. They are all animals.
