Two innocent Americans were brutally attacked by a knife-wielding stranger screaming “Allahu akbar” in Virginia this weekend — and the media doesn’t want to talk about it.

However, the FBI has admitted it is now looking into ISIS connections with the bloody Saturday stabbings of a man and woman in Roanoke.

Wasil Farooqui of Roanoke County is charged in the stabbings at The Pines Apartments. Roanoke County police say that during the attack Farooqui was yelling “Allahu akbar!” and reports state he had recently traveled to Turkey within the last year — and may have tried to sneak into Syria to meet with ISIS fighters.

Reports also state that Farooqui unsuccessfully attempted to behead the man during the attack, which police said they believe was random. Both victims were seriously wounded in the attack and are being treated for their injuries at a nearby hospital, according to local station WDBJ-7.

The 20-year-old Farooqui is charged with two counts of aggravated malicious wounding and is being held in jail without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail.
