Investigators: 'Serial Stabber' Targeting Black Men 8-04-2010

Police are warning the public to be on the lookout for a serial stabber.
Driving the streets of Flint late at night and into the early morning hours, it's believed the man is looking to violently attack vulnerable men.
So far, at least 15 men have been stabbed in Genesee County since mid-May, and five of them have died.
Flint police Lt. T.P. Johnson said the stabbings are the work of one man. "We think he is hunting," said Johnson.
A vague description of the man was given by the surviving victims. They said their attacker is a white male, with a heavy build, between 5 foot 11 and 6 foot 2 -- possibly with light colored hair.
Police believe he is only targeting adult African-American males who are smaller than him and walking the streets alone. In at least two cases, the victims were people with special needs.
It's believed he lures the men in by asking them for directions or help with his car. "The victims are attempting to help this person, and in several cases he's just walked up and started stabbing," Johnson said.
Most of the stabbings have occurred off major roadways where authorities said it is easier to constantly drive back and forth in a stalking fashion.
The latest victim was found in the 2100 block of South Saginaw Street on Monday. Police said Arnold Minor was stabbed multiple times with a sharp object before he died.
Police don't have an exact physical description of the subject to release yet, and they don't have a vehicle description that they want to give out at this time.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the Michigan State Police post in Flint Township.
