Suspect in serial stabbings is indicted in Ohio

A man suspected in a string of stabbings in Michigan and Virginia has been charged with stabbing a church custodian in Ohio.
A grand jury in Toledo indicted Elias Abuelazam on Friday.
He's charged with felonious assault and attempted murder in the stabbing of Tony Leno, who was standing outside a Toledo church in August when a man asked for directions, then began stabbing him.
Leno survived the attack, and Abuelazam was arrested days later while trying to board a plane to Israel, his native country.
He also faces one murder charge and five attempted murder charges in Michigan. Five men were killed and nine injured in a series of stabbings in the Flint, Michigan, area.
Abuelazam is also suspected in four attacks in Virginia.
