Virginia Stabbing Linked To ISIS 

Virginia Stabbing: Authorities believe that the madman who stabbed to victims in Virginia over the weekend while screaming “Allah Akbar” was aiming for an ISIS-inspired beheading.

Wasil Farooqui is accused of wounding a man and woman in a Roanoke apartment building when he went after them Saturday evening with a knife, authorities said.

The brutal attacker and his two victims — who may have been picked at random — were taken to the hospital after the stabbing. Though the pair was severely injured, by Monday they were “recovering well,” police said in a statement.

The victims’ names will not be released, police said.

The 20-year-old stabber may have been trying to behead his male victim, according to ABC.

Farooqui has been on the feds’ radar for a while, and may have journeyed to Turkey and tried sneaking into Syria sometime within the past year.

After the August knife attack, the FBI launched a probe into a possible terror connection.

Farooqui has been charged with two counts of aggravated malicious wounding and is being held without bail in the county jail.
