A man suspected in a series of stabbings in Virginia and Michigan was arrested at the Atlanta airport as he tried to board a plane bound for Israel.
A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the agency's officers arrested the man about 10 p.m. Wednesday night at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, as he attempted to board a Delta flight for Tel Aviv. The suspect was handed over to the FBI and Atlanta police.
Spokesman Rafael Lemaitre says the man is wanted on arrest warrants in murder cases in Flint, Mich., and Leesburg, Va.
Authorities say an Ohio stabbing also appears to be linked to the violent spree that killed five men and wounded several others.
