Early Friday, police in Shelburne, Vermont received a call about a man with a knife smashing out car windows at Harbor Place, a local hotel that provides temporary emergency housing services for the homeless.
WCAX News That female, was a 73-year-old Meals on Wheels volunteer who was dropping off meals on the regular route. It is unclear what provoked the attack, but police say 32-year-old Abukar Ibrahim was the one with a machete. He attacked the woman who sustained multiple injuries. She was sent to the hospital, and later released.
The attacker reportedly barricaded himself into a room at the hotel for over two hours, before finally emerging. The police took Ibrahim into custody, and he is now facing attempted murder charges. He is being held at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility, and is scheduled to be arraigned before a judge on Monday.
The victim was taken to the hospital with multiple injuries, but was later released with a “significant leg wound.”
No further information has been provided yet about Ibrahim. He was described in the news report as a “Burlington man,” indicating he lives in Burlington, Vermont.
This was NOT a Vermont man, as the article would have you believe, this is a foreigner in Vermont, and the second machete attack to happen in just a few months 😡 https://t.co/hZhWxmexNF
