Police Detain Man In Connection With Serial Stabbings
The suspect in a string of stabbings of African Americans, a Michigan man, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Atlanta, Georgia.
The serial killer is described as a white man in his late 20s to early 30s, about 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet 2 inches tall with a heavy or muscular build. He may have light-colored hair and usually wears a baseball cap during the attacks, and he also has an earring on the top of his ear.
He is suspected in string of serial stabbing deaths in Michigan, Virginia and Ohio.
Out of the 20 victims who have been stabbed since May, five men have died, police said.
The most recent attack was on Saturday in Toledo, Ohio. A minister was stabbed outside of his church while smoking a cigarette, according to Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton
