“To go over the curb and strike pedestrians and to get out and start striking them with a knife, that was on purpose,” campus Police Chief Craig Stone said. “Our officers were on the scene in less than a minute and he ended the situation less than a minute.

Who was the suspect?

Ohio states university attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan

Abdul Razak Ali Artan, Somali refugee who has been in America since 2014. Police are still waiting to search his home, but at this time there are no direct connections to ISIS. But many are putting two and two together. Earlier this year in October ISIS called for knife attacks, calling it a “campaign of knife attacks” so the attacker could “dispose of his weapon after each use, finding no difficulty in acquiring another one.”

Minutes before the attack Abdul Razak Ali Artan took to his Facebook saying the following…

“I can’t take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.”

18 year old Abdul Razak Ali Artan was very vocal on his feelings about America. He was even interviewed by the school paper in August of this year, below is an excerpt from the article…

“I wanted to pray in the open, but I was scared with everything going on in the media. I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be. If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don’t know what they’re going to think, what’s going to happen. But, I don’t blame them. It’s the media that put that picture in their heads so they’re just going to have it and it, it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable. I was kind of scared right now. But I just did it. I relied on God. I went over to the corner and just prayed.”
