Sheriff: Officer Attacked By Alleged Serial Killer

Sheriff: Officer Attacked By Alleged Serial Killer

Associated Press

October 29, 2010

FLINT, Mich. (AP) – A sheriff in Michigan says an alleged serial killer who is accused in a string of stabbings across three states tried to punch a sergeant and was subdued with a stun gun. Two deputies were injured.

Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell tells The Flint Journal that Elias Abuelazam (ee-lee-AHS’ A’-boo-LAH’-zuhm) was unshackled and outside his cell Wednesday night at the time.

Pickell says five deputies rushed to assist. He says Abuelazam’s face was swollen but he wasn’t seriously injured.

Abuelazam is charged with three murders in the Flint area as well as five attempted murders. He also is charged with attempted murder in Toledo, Ohio, and is a suspect in similar crimes in Leesburg, Va.

Authorities have said in some stabbings the victims were asked for help or directions before being attacked.

    He is trying his best to get away with his crimes by getting Deputies to kick his butt in the hopes that the Judge will toss his case out. Not gonna happen. He is just going to keep getting his butt whipped which is fine with me.
