Machete-Wielding Somali Migrant Wounds Elderly Charity Worker in Vermont

The machete-wielding migrant started attacking cars but he attacked and wounded an elderly woman.

In Shelburne, a suburb of the Burlington metro area, a machete-wielding Somali immigrant was placed under arrest for attempted murder. He was arrested after he assaulted a charity worker for Meals on Wheels. The woman who regularly volunteered for the route was 73 years old.

“On arrival we found that this person who was reported to have a knife, had actually attacked an elderly female,” said Corporal Jon Marcoux of Shelburne Police.

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.

Ibrahim is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, on the charge of attempted murder.
