How many more of these ‘lone wolf’ attacks will America have to endure before our law enforcement drop their PC bullshit agenda and start profiling all of these guys? This is insane. Stay armed and aware people.
The FBI has launched a terrorism investigation after an alleged extremist attempted to behead a man and stabbed a woman outside in Virginia in a possible ISIS-inspired attack.
The incident happened outside an apartment complex on Saturday night in what police in Roanoke are describing as a ‘random attack’.
Witnesses said the suspect, identified as 20-year-old Wasil Rafat Farooqui, shouted ‘Allah Akbar’, meaning ‘God is the greatest’, while attempting to decapitate the male victim, who was able to fight off the armed assailant.
The suspect had previously tried to sneak into Syria for terrorist training.
Police arrested Farooqui, a US-born citizen, when he walked into the same hospital as the two victims to seek medical treatment for his own injuries.
The suspect has been charged with two counts of malicious wounding causing permanent impairment according to jail records. He is being held without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail.
According to jail records, the man and woman suffered ‘permanent impairment’.
According to ABC News, Farooqui had previously traveled to Turkey with the aim of sneaking over the border into Syria and joining ISIS.
A US intelligence source tells CBS News that Farooqui, who is believed to be self-radicalized, only got as far as Europe in his travels and returned home earlier this year.
