The FBI is currently involved in a stabbing investigation in Roanoke County. Wasil Farooqui is charged in the incident that seriously injured a man and woman at The Pines Apartments on Saturday.
Witnesses told police that during the attack Farooqui was yelling “Allah Akbar.” He is still in jail with no bond.
A man stabbed two people Saturday in what Roanoke County Police say is a random attack.
A man and woman told police they were attacked at The Pines Apartment just before 8 p.m. as they came into their apartment building. Both were hurt and had to be taken to the hospital.
Police have charged Wasil Farooqui, 20, of Roanoke County in connection to the stabbing. He has been charged with two counts of aggravated malicious wounding.
He is currently being held at the Western Virginia Regional Jail.
Investigators believe this was a random attack and that Farooqui had no connection to the two victims.
What is still highly likely is that this was a terrorist attack and we should be on our guard now more than ever.
