Alleged Serial Stabber Facing Charges From Fight 11-04-2010

An alleged serial killer who is accused in a string of stabbings across three states is now facing additional charges steaming from a jail house fight involving several Genesee County sheriff's deputies.
Elias Abuelazam was arraigned Thursday afternoon on five new charges, including two counts of resisting and obstructing an officer, causing injury.
Police said Abuelazam was unshackled and outside his cell on Oct. 27 when he tried to a punch a sergeant.
Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell said five deputies rushed to assist and were forced to subdue Abuelazam with a stun gun.
Two deputies were injured. 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.
